Composer/bandleader Christine Jensen: The Christine Jensen Jazz Orchestra: "Habitat".

This marvelous album is tonight's Jazz Feature and as it is the first night of The Jazz Show's new policy, The Jazz Feature will be heard right after our theme and initial intro....right after 9pm instead of the old time of after 11pm.The Jazz feature is Montreal based Christine Jensen and her Jazz Orchestra. This album called "Habitat" won the 2014 Juno Award for Best Large Jazz Ensemble. The band consists of the cream of the crop of Montreal based players and is a very large group of over 20 pieces. Christine's compositions reflect her studies and influences of Maria Schneider, Gil Evans and Bob Brookmeyer. The music is six compositions that can be listened to as a continuous suite or as individual moods. All in all a deep and wonderful sonic pleasure.
