PEI-based songwriter and spoken-word poet Bob Jensen is currently recording with celebrated flamenco artist, Juan Martin.
Martin has recorded with Herbie Hancock, performed with Miles Davis, and was invited by Picasso to perform at his 90th birthday celebrations. Martin has also performed at Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House and the Royal Albert Hall.
Bob Jensen has been focused mostly on spoken-word poetry in recent years and toured his work in Australia last March. He recently returned to writing and recording music.
Jensen and Martin will release a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne” to radio in Canada, Europe and Australia. The song will also feature cellist Ray Cooper (Oysterband), and Emmanuelle LeBlanc (Vishtèn) on vocals. The track is being recorded in Canada and Europe, and will be produced by PEI’s Chris Corrigan.
