Bonnie J Jensen - Lucky So & So
“Bonnie Jensen has made a wonderful album of well crafted originals and interesting arrangements of jazz standards featuring some of the finest established musicians in Sydney. An ultimately listenable and accessible tour de force.”
Bonnie Jensen hails from New Zealand. As you can see, she is beautiful, and so is her music. Her vocal nuance is very much "jazz". She has that kind of flaxen blonde voice you want to listen to forever. And her singing is very clear. The improvisation on the
second track, "Garota de Ipanema" , is very fine, with backing not only of piano trio but multiple saxes as well. Listening to "A Foggy Day", which she also arranged, you can really appreciate how she can get inside a song. She has a high standard and sings like no one else, but with an indefinable air of nostalgia. This is music for adults."
