Jane Ira Bloom - Wild Lines, Improvising Emily Dickenson / Midwest Record

Bookmark and Share

If Jane Ira Bloom wasn't one of the singularly voiced soprano sax aces of our times, this project would have been in lesser hands and labeled the work of an art chick.  Not so here.  Bloom turns her attention to impressionistic voices from the works of Dickinson and follows that up with a second disc that follows the same suit but with vocals reading Dickinson over the music.  Rounding up some well known pros up for following her on this creative journey through the wilderness of the nu record business, the result is a perfect storm of a sitting down jazz date you don' have to be an egghead to enjoy.  Tapping into Dickinson's little known side as a jazz piano improviser, the whole thing makes perfect sense on so many levels if you just sit back and let it do it's thing.  Smoking art jazz that goes the distance.
