Ingrid Jensen.

Trumpeter Ingrid Jensen has built a strong reputation among critics and peers — including Marian McPartland, who praised the warmth and virtuosity of her playing. Jensen's performances as a leader and featured soloist have taken her around the world, and she can be heard with the Christine Jensen Orchestra, her own quartet and quintet formations, and a number of New York bands.

Jensen is McPartland's guest in this edition of Piano Jazz from 2000, with musical selections including "A Child Is Born" and "Chelsea Bridge."

Originally broadcast in the spring of 2000.
