Blues Rock that Packs a Punch

The 13-track Live: The River Sessions, recorded at a Memphis gig in December 2015, kicks into high gear right after an MC opens the show and never lets up. Backed by a bass player and drummer, Jensen delivers 10 originals plus covers of T-Bone Walker’s “T-Bone Shuffle, Tom Waits’s “Heart Attack and Vine,” and Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower,” the latter in a show-closing, nearly-10-minute performance. Jensen’s songs are solid and his vocals pack a punch but it’s his blistering guitar work that will really make you stand up and cheer.
