“...a saxophonist of impressive range, from mainstream to free.”
- JAZZTIMES

BRENT JENSEN is the Director of Jazz Studies and Woodwinds at the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls. He is the artistic director for the CSI Jazz Summit and the Jazz Saturdays workshop series.

Brent has shared the stage with many great jazz artists including Gene Harris, Bobby Shew, Bill Watrous, the Lionel Hampton Big Band, Curtis Stigers, Gary Foster, Dianne Schuur, Lew Soloff, Don Menza and others. His recordings have received national jazz radio airplay and have been featured in jazz periodicals such as Jazziz, Cadence, Jazz Improv, and Saxophone Journal. In 1986-87, Brent studied in New York City with jazz legend Lee Konitz on a grant from the Idaho Commission on the Arts. He was a featured winner of the Woodwinds on Fire international talent search conducted by Jazziz magazine (August 1996).

Brent made a striking debut on Origin with 2002's "The Sound of a Dry Martini: Remembering Paul Desmond," (Origin 82396) charting on National Jazz Top 50 for over thirteen weeks in the spring of 2002. Selections from Dry Martini held the #1 spot on a number of jazz radio station charts across the country including WRTI (Philadelphia, PA), WICN (Worcester, MA), and KUSD (Sioux Falls, SD). His 2008 release with Bill Anschell, Jeff Johnson and John Bishop, "One More Mile," was named one of the top jazz releases of the year by the Village Voice.
