Jane Ira Bloom Quartet – Improvising Emily Dickinson
September 23, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0$30
Jazz’s greatest living soprano saxophonist performs with her spectacular quartet including pianist Dawn Clement, bassist Mark Helias, and drummer Bobby Previte. Possessing a painterly style and firm command of electronic textures, Bloom creates music that gives form to mysterious beauty and subconscious emotions. Two performances – 6:00pm & 7:30pm.
Regularly cited as jazz’s foremost master on her wily instrument, she’s distinguished herself over the past 35 years as a resourceful bandleader and a melodically expansive composer particularly inspired by painters and poets. She’s also a tenured professor at The New School and a Guggenheim Fellow.
Bloom’s latest album, 2017’s Wild Lines: Improvising Emily Dickinson (Outline), features the same stellar band she brings to SFJAZZ.
