“Connected with the heart and hips as much as the head"
--David Sprague, Variety

Beyond the Brain was created w/ support from Chamber Music America's New Works: Creation & Presentation Program, funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

Soprano saxophonist/ composer Jane Ira Bloom was recently awarded the 2007 Mary Lou Williams Jazz Award for lifetime service to jazz. Winner of the 2006 Jazz Journalists award for soprano saxophone, the IWJ Jazz Masters Award, and the IAJE Charlie Parker Fellowship for jazz innovation, Bloom, a former NASA artist was also honored by having an asteroid named in her honor (asteroid:6083janeirabloom) by the International Astronomical Union. Recent performances with her quartet include the Virginia Arts Festival, The Lensic Theatre (NM), the first International Society of Improvisers Conference (MI), and Sweet Rhythm (NYC). She has composed for the American Composers Orchestra, the St Luke's Chamber Ensemble and the Pilobolus, Paradigm, and Philadanco dance companies and looks forward to scoring a new work for legendary dancer/choreographer Carmen DeLavallade in 2007. Her latest CD Like Silver, Like Song on the innovative ArtistShare label is available at the website below.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
