Trumpeter Ingrid Jensen goes for a cereberal and funky organ style on Now as Then. Under the auspices of Project O, Jensen enlists the stellar support of B-3 organist Gary Versace and drummer Jon Wikan to propel her through a fiery mix of originals and standards. A firebrand, bringing to mind such edgy progenitors as Woody Shaw and Tim Hagans, Jensen proves herself a virtuoso on what has to be her best release to date. Guest spots via reed players Christine Jensen, Seamus Blake, and Steve Wilson add depth to this already stellar ensemble.
