Growing up in Madison, WI, Mara discovered music at an early age, finding her voice walking alone in the tall grass of Wisconsin’s prairie land, dancing on the piers, and listening with consistently open ears.

Mara’s passion for music as well as human diversity and interaction eventually drew her to New York City, where she studied jazz composition & piano at New York University, graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies in 2008

Mara Rosenbloom Trio: Prairie Burn

Read "Prairie Burn" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

When thought outpaces action in music, the results are often staid and forgettable. Conversely, when thinking is suppressed in favor of ceaseless activity, the end results are often turbid, shambolic, and largely unlistenable. It's the power struggle between the two, along with the personalities controlling that struggle, that help jazz to expand, evolve, explore, and excite. ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
