Soprano saxophonist/composer Jane Ira Bloom has been developing her unique voice on the soprano saxophone for over 30 years. She is a pioneer in the use of live electronics and movement in jazz, as well as the possessor of "one of the most gorgeous tones and hauntingly lyrical ballad conceptions of any soprano saxophonist," writes Pulse. Bill Milkowski has called her "A true jazz original...a restlessly creative spirit and a modern day role model for any aspiring musician who dares to follow his or her own vision." 


William Parker
