Bookmark and Share

Soprano saxophonist/composer and NASA artist Jane Ira Bloom brings her trio for the first time to Brooklyn NY - ShapeShifter Lab on March 13 performing with long-time bandmates bassist Mark Helias and drummer Matt Wilson. A pioneer in the use of live electronics and movement in jazz, Bloom's been leading bands into new creative territory for over 40 years. She is a multi-time winner of the Downbeat Critics Poll and Jazz Journalists Award for Soprano Saxophone and recipient of the Guggenheim fellowship. The trio has always held a special fascination for musicians because "playing in threes" holds out the possibility that something can always be slightly off balance and that's just what fires the imagination of players like these. Helias and Wilson, mature composer/ bandleaders in their own right, add depth and innovation to every spontaneous choice they make. Don't miss these "fearless jazz explorers who share a commitment to beauty & adventure.
