Savoy Bookshop & Café and Storm & Arrow Productions present a concert and live recording session with local musician Thor Jensen as part of our Live at Savoy concert series. This event is limited to 80 people. General admission tickets are $25 and include a digital download of the concert through Libro.fm when it is complete.
Thor Jensen is a New York based guitarist with a unique sound that seamlessly integrates his masterful technique with the styles that influence him, allowing him to blend styles from Gypsy Jazz to Rock and Roll, Blues, and Country. A multi-faceted and versatile player, Jensen is artfully adept as an improvisor and studio performer, and as an ensemble player, bandleader and soloist.
In August 2015, Jensen was invited to join modern guitar master, Stephane Wrembel’s band as the second guitarist. As a member of the SWB, he has performed around the world, from the US Embassy in Abuja, Nigeria, to the Django A Gogo festival at Carnegie Hall.
Prior to joining SWB, Thor was lead guitarist for Quiet Life, a traveling rock band described by The Daily Beast’s James Joiner as “the audio equivalent of a warm, hazy, sunlight-and-nostalgia-drenched photo of the best road trip you’ve ever had.”
Thor is currently working on a new record, original songs inspired by American roots music and the electric guitar. Due out this fall, featuring Ari Folman-Cohen and Nick Anderson.
