Jamie Baum: Moving Forward, Standing Still

Read "Moving Forward, Standing Still" reviewed by Sean Patrick Fitzell


Experimenting with unconventional instrumentation is sometimes just that--testing an idea to see if it works.

Jamie Baum: Moving Forward, Standing Still

Read "Moving Forward, Standing Still" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Moving Forward, Standing Still doesn't sound as though it's led by a flautist, in spite of the fact that flautist Jamie Baum has allowed herself and her instrument their fair share of solo time. She's also given her front line cohorts their share, too, in addition to writing in a good deal of multi-horn harmony and ...
