Jane Ira Bloom's new - Wild Lines: Improvising Emily Dickinson is a recording not to miss. The poetry of the reclusive yet visionary 19th Century poet is reimagined by the noted soprano saxophonist and composer on two CDs, with her jazz quartet and then adding spoken word readings by stage and film actor Deborah Rush. Bloom's lyrical genius at the soprano saxophone is the perfect compliment for Rush's readings of Dickinson's poetry. Together with Dawn Clement at the piano, Mark Helias on the bass and Bobby Previte on the drums, this is a sublime experience, with fourteen originals by the saxophonist  inspired by fragments of Dickinson's poetry and prose.
