Jane Ira Bloom, Allison Miller - Tues Days gets 4 stars from All About Jazz

Bookmark and Share

In March and April of 2021 soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom and drummer Allison Miller came together on five Tuesdays to record some improvised duets to see what might happen. They didn't set out to make an album - they just wanted to play because they needed to improvise any way that they could. They played with complete abandon, performing remotely from their home studios in New York City in the 2021 reality of the world. Tues Days is the result of those recordings that now appear on Bloom's Outline label and are available through Miller's Bandcamp site, mixed and mastered by bassist Mark Helias with breathtaking fidelity. 

All About Jazz - Mike Jurkovic writes.....With Tues Days both Miller and Bloom cut their inner hippie loose to gambol out in the fields with flowers in their hair and their skirts all a-billow. It is not all fun and games, as any ageing hippie learns, but still you have gotta get out in the sunshine, air it out and bond; close the chasm that technology, in equal terms ,either helps us cross or broadens, and jam merrily on. Even if it is remotely, you are never alone.
