Jane Ira Bloom Like Silver, Like Song Launches on Artistshare
It's not just about the CD, it's a whole new imaginative vista... Soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom has a bold new album and a bold new way of reaching listeners with her creativity.
Jane's latest CD Like Silver, Like Song launches on the innovative Artistshare label on April 15th. Her elecktro-acoustic band with longtime bandmates Mark Dresser (bass), Bobby Previte (drums & e-drums), and keyboard/ electronics wizard Jamie Saft galvanizes for her 12th and most recent recording. The musical journey this time is inspired by The Interpretation of Dreams. Like Silver, Like Song features twelve Bloom originals and one stunning sax/ bass rendition of the Rodgers & Hammerstein classic 'I Have Dreamed.' Bloom recorded the music just after the group's ground-breaking performances at Tonic and Sweet Rhythm in New York City and captured all the spark and spontaneity of the band's live kinetic energy. The CD also features an mp3 downloadable version of the music. But the CD is just the beginning.
Artistshare is a completely new way of putting an artist's creative process front and center. It's an imaginative new business idea that extends the focus beyond the CD to the elements that go into creating it. It's an idea that meets the creative strength and impulse of an innovator like Jane Ira Bloom.
Soprano saxophonist/composer Jane Ira Bloom is a pioneer in the use of live electronics and movement in jazz. She also has one of the most gorgeous tones and hauntingly lyrical ballad conceptions of any soprano saxophonist - Pulse. Unique in philosophy and approach, her music is inspired by influences ranging from Billie Holiday to space exploration. In her first year long project with Artistshare, Jane will be sharing her improvisational process with listeners by providing access to the making of Like Silver, Like Song and her far-ranging creative process through interviews, writing, personal photography, and monthly podcasts. It's a whole new imaginative vista.
