Jane Ira Bloom: Like Silver, Like Song

Read "Like Silver, Like Song" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Jane Ira Bloom is one of those musicians I'd known about by reputation but hadn't actually heard. Now, having listened at last to her most recent album, Like Silver, Like Song, I am somewhat at a loss as to what to say about it. Even though well-played--let there be no doubt about that--it is clearly on ...

Read "Like Silver, Like Song" reviewed by Michael McCaw


Like Silver, Like Song marks another fine addition to Jane Ira Bloom's catalog and another evolution of her working quartet, which has featured a number of accomplished pianists. However, with the addition of Jamie Saft this time around, one can easily hear that she may have discovered her ideal foil. Bloom has long been developing her ...

Read "Like Silver, Like Song" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni


Jane Ira Bloom has a visual approach to sound. She is inspired by visual textures like the action paintings of Jackson Pollock (Chasing Paint, Arabesque, 2003); she adds her abstract black and white photography to her new release; but she describes Like Silver, Like Song as a continuous visual dream. A melodic dream, to be sure, ...

Welcome to the 21st Century. With her electro-acoustic design, Jane Ira Bloom forges into exciting territory. She lifts her proud interpretation of straight-ahead, mainstream jazz into a higher realm. Using electronic devices, Bloom and her musical partners shift sound patterns into what we've come to know as science fiction effects. The band ...

Jane Ira Bloom: Like Silver, Like Song

Read "Like Silver, Like Song" reviewed by John Kelman


Jane Ira Bloom is one of only a handful of artists who make the soprano saxophone their main axe. But unlike David Liebman, whose expressionist bent is an acoustic concern, Bloom innovates by seamlessly and organically blending real-time electronic processing. That's not to say the sounds she coaxes out of her instrument are necessarily natural, but ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
