The JAMIE BAUM Septet + performs at NYC's Jazz Gallery on Saturday, May 30th in a program of original modern jazz compositions "influenced by the rhythms of Stravinsky, harmonies of Ives, and melodies of Qawwlli vocalist Nusrat Fateh Ali Kahn".

A 2014 Guggenhiem Fellowship Award recipient, Ms. Baum will present new compositions along with music from their recent CD. In This Life, released on Sunnyside Records, received great attention including reviews from The New York Times, DownBeat, JazzTimes, etc., and was featured in NPR's All Things Considered and WBGO's RADAR. It made several “Best CDs of 2013” lists including DownBeat, JazzTimes, ITunes, Rhapsody.com, The Boston Globe and Francis Davis' NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll and was nominated by the Jazz Journalists Association in 2014 as "Best Midsize Ensemble of the Year", in the same list with only two other bands…The Wayne Shorter Quartet and Steve Coleman and Five Elements!
