Jamie Baum CD Release Celebration at Jazz Standard on 9/23
(Published: September 16, 2008)
Flutist/composer Jamie Baum has been earning accolades as "that rare double-threat: a musician who can play and write equally well" (Jazziz). She's been twice nominated as "Flutist of the Year" by the Jazz Journalists Association and annually for the past 6 years as a DownBeat "Rising Star." She brings her band to the Jazz Standard on September 23rd to celebrate her new Sunnyside CD "Solace" (her fourth as a leader), which has been called "a major statement...endlessly imaginative" by JazzTimes, and it features her long-standing septet including some of NYC's hottest players. DownBeat gave 4 stars to Jamie's last CD, and Time Out NY says: "An estimable soloist, Baum wisely assembled a crack band. The clever intricacy of Baum's compositions should by no means be dismissed, but the exuberance with which this band negotiates her every harmonic thicket and hairpin curve provides an even greater thrill."
