Jane Ira Bloom Plays Emily Dickinson

Award winning soprano saxophonist/composer Jane Ira Bloom presents the New York premiere of “Wild Lines,” her new work for jazz quartet and spoken word, inspired by the poetry of Emily Dickinson. Bloom’s reimagining of Dickinson was ignited when she learned that the poet was a pianist and improviser, reaffirming Bloom’s intuitive connection to the jazz-like quality of Dickinson’s writing. Join us for a collaboration across time between two pioneering women artists - one a 21st century jazz musician, the other a 19th century visionary poet. Poetry recitation from actress Deborah Rush will echo and intermingle with music performed by the Jane Ira Bloom quartet: Dawn Clement (piano), Kent McLagan (bass), and Bobby Previte (drums). Wild Lines was made possible by Chamber Music America’s 2015 New Jazz Works Program funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Foundation.

“The poet of the soprano saxophone ”
Brian Priestley, Jazzwise


“There is no one like Jane Ira Bloom. First of all, she plays soprano sax… filling in all the spaces with the molecular precision of a scientist, and the poetic pronouncements of the misunderstood”
Carol Banks Weber, AXS
