Brooklyn, NY – The Jamie Baum Septet+, led by New York-based flutist, composer, and 2014 Guggenheim Fellow Jamie Baum, celebrates the release of their album Bridges on Sunnyside Records.The highly-anticipated follow-up to Baum’s wildly successful 2013 recording In This Life, Bridges is the culmination of Baum’s search for common links between some of the world’s great religious music traditions, resulting in a recording of depth, beauty, spirituality, and undiluted zeal. Hailed by Downbeat for her “remarkable artistic facility” and by The New York Times for her “remarkable balance of fluidity and restless creativity,” Baum’s advanced harmonic sensibility and sonic imagination—beautifully brought to life by the members of her long-running ensemble—proves the capacity of modern jazz to absorb and transform music of diverse traditions, without sacrificing the improvisational core of its identity.
