Congratulations to Crossover Media Artist: Jane Ira Bloom on her 2014 GRAMMY Nomination for 'Sixteen Sunsets' in the 'Best Surround Sound Album' category. The 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards will air Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014, on CBS.

Sixteen Sunsets Blu-ray version is a co-release between Pure Audio Records and Outline Music. The album was recorded in 5.1 high-resolution Surround Sound at New York's famed Avatar Studio B by renowned engineer Jim Anderson who also co-produced and pushed the envelope of how a jazz quartet could sound using this technique. On the session, the saxophone was surrounded by a satellite array of mics and ‘Surround' was a perfect match for the soprano sax because the sound doesn't emanate directly from the bell of the horn, it radiates out in all directions from the instrument in a more diffuse way. JIB said: "I've always been interested in the doppler-like effect created when the bell of the horn passes the microphones."

The standard CD version of Sixteen Sunsets will be released on January 7, 2014 through Outline.
