With the Belle of Amherst as her muse, Jane Ira Bloom fashions vibrant double-disk / The New Yorker

Bookmark and Share

With the Belle of Amherst as her muse, the soprano saxophonist and composer Jane Ira Bloom has fashioned a vibrant, wholly unpretentious, double-disk project, "Wild Lines: Improvising Emily Dickinson," which translates both the introspective and the visionary nature of the great poet into exultant modern jazz. The actor Deborah Rush will again join Bloom's quartet, speaking Dickinson's abiding words.
