Jamie Baum Septet +
Baum's awards include "Best Flutist," "Top Rising Star," a Guggenheim and many others. A focused artist with numerous, ongoing ambitious projects, for this tour she is traveling with the ensemble who recorded her most recent album. Each member is familiar with her personal language and the complex delicacy of her compositions. The music they will perform is from In This Life: Indian and Pakistani-influenced music filtered through Baum's jazz and classical aesthetic. Baum traveled South Asia where she was "touched viscerally by the sounds of tabla, bansuri flute and vocal music." She further deepened her knowledge by studying and performing with top Indian icons including Karaikudi Mani, V.M. Bhatt and Sandeep Das. Come listen to this driving and colorful blend of jazz and South Asian music performed with respect, intelligence and groove.
The New York Times, Ben Ratliff writes:
Ms. Baum...[is] into tone color and timbre and the blending of languages, jazz and the 20th-century classical and Afro-Latin music. But she's got an elegantly persuasive composing hand... There are no pedantic mixtures here; she makes what she takes from classical minimalism and Indian qawwali mix together and feel natural.
