WXXI kicks off Season 8 of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival series with multi-talented pianist, composer, improviser, and arranger Marianne Trudel and special guest trumpeter Ingrid Jensen.

The 2016 edition of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival series brings viewers the Jazz Fest's "Oh, Canada!" series shot at The Rochester Club. The "Oh Canada!" series, presented by The Canada Council for the Arts, features bands and performers from across Canada. Marianne Trudel and Ingrid Jensen were the first of the "Oh Canada" performers and WXXI captured their sound in the first episode of Season 8 of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival series, premiering Saturday, May 13, 2017 at 4 p.m. on WXXI-TV. It repeats Sunday, June 4th at 1 a.m. on WXXI-TV.

Marianne Trudel is a multi-talented pianist, composer, improviser, and arranger.  At once energetic and passionate, her music cross-cuts a wide swath of musical interests.  She has published 6 recordings as a leader all having garnered rave reviews.  She has played in Canada, United States, France, Spain, Germany, and Mexico. 

Ingrid Jensen has been hailed as one of the most gifted trumpeters of her generation. She attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. Since graduating in 1989, her life has contained a whirlwind of musical activities.  From her early days playing in the subways of New York, to establishing herself as a leader and soloist in a wide array of musical genres, Ingrid has made her mark.  Her performances as a leader and as a featured soloist have taken her around the world from Canada to Japan, Australia, South America, South Africa, the Caribbean and to almost every country in Europe and Scandinavia.
