Not long after Ingrid Jensen graduated from Berklee College of Music, her trumpet was heard all throughout New York City — at least in its subways and parks. In the 20-plus years since then, her gigs have improved quite a bit: touring with hard-bop masters, or playing in Terri Lyne Carrington's Grammy-winning Mosaic Project ensemble, or backing Madeleine Peyroux or Corinne Bailey Rae, or soloing in acclaimed big bands led by Maria Schneider or Darcy James Argue. She's found time for a few bands of her own, including the small group behind the 2006 album At Sea.

Ingrid Jensen returned to Berklee College of Music for this installment of The Checkout: Live concert series. In a live radio broadcast on WBGO and live online video webcast at NPR Music, the Ingrid Jensen Quintet performed live at Berklee's Cafe 939 on Thursday, April 12.
