Rick Jensen

The Rick Jensen Trio was started in 1999,We are an improvising group, all of our music is spontaneous, making every performance completely unique. Many different musicians have played with the band, some only once and others have stuck around for a couple of years.Originally formed in Wellington, New Zealand, we are now based London and there are various musicians who come and go from the group, the line-up can change with each performance.The group isn't always a trio but thats usually what it works out to be. We've experimented with all kinds of combinations and instrumentation, often dictated by who was around and able to perform.The group has been as large as 6 and as small as 2. We are essentially a live band and perform as often as possible. We have 16 releases most of which were released in limited edition CDRs and are no longer in print, currently available is “A Fundamental Problem”(available for download from ) “High Tension” a limited CDR and 4 older releases are still available from Postmoderncore records. We are currently working on future releases. Rick is also a member of I-C-E an improvising clarinet ensemble, Nova Scotia a free form abstract trio, The Radioactive Ensemble an international music/art collective and performs in other collaborative projects. He is a photographer and has had over 20 exhibitions in NZ and the U.K

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
