A jazz-orientated recording artist and singer/songwriter, Bonnie possesses an uplifting repertoire and a voice that segues effortlessly from soulful interpretations of classy jazz standards and poetic originals through adventurous arrangements of contemporary songs.
Playing in a variety of line-ups that showcase the pride of regional jazz talent, whether out front with her Quintet or at the piano solo or with bass, Bonnie’s live performances display her warmth, sheer love of good music, and passion for creating wonderful events.
Draws on many influences, sounding sometimes reminiscent of Renee Geyer. At other times, traces of Peggy Lee or Sarah Vaughan emerge…. Jensen’s title ballad [The Sapphire Tree], an original, displays a talent for both musical composition and poetic lyrics, evident too in “Neon Soliloquy”: “Like a diamond in the river, as precious as the African rain, this glimpse of bliss will sustain you – again and again”
