Jamie Baum Septet: Solace

Read "Solace" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Solace è un album sugli equilibri. Principalmente tra scrittura e improvvisazione - il brano dedicato a Kenny Wheeler e la mini suite ispirata a Charles Ives sono lì a testimoniarlo - ma anche tra musica d’insieme e momenti solistici, tra acustico ed elettrico, tra forma e libertà, tra conservazione e ricerca. Il settetto allestito dalla flautista, newyorchese d’adozione, si ...

One of the many highlights of this set includes the “Ives Suite," where she rearranges the composer's famous ...

Jamie Baum Septet: Moving Forward, Standing Still

Read "Moving Forward, Standing Still" reviewed by John Kelman

Pity the poor flute. All too often relegated to the second line as an instrument doubled by saxophonists, considered an insubstantial instrument best used, if at all, for bossa novas and lightweight smooth jazz, its position in the jazz world is generally considered to be insignificant. And that's a shame, because while its attractive timbre may ...
