Editorial Reviews

Review

There is not a dull or cliche moment...Wingwalker proves, once again, why Jane Ira Bloom is one of the most original and creative saxophonists in jazz today. --Wilbert Sostre, All About Jazz

Wingwalker with its positive energy and inspired ensemble connections, proves to be another feather in Bloom's cap and one of the best recordings to surface at the dawn of 2011. --Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz

There is something new and exciting on each track, like hang gliding through the universe. An album overflowing with imagination...a candidate for record of the year, and possibly a Grammy nomination. --Don Albert, Newstime

5.0 out of 5 stars The Romantic Creativity of Jane Ira Bloom January 14, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
There are few jazz recordings released in the recent past that measure up to the originality and creativity as WINGWALKER. Strong words of praise? Yes, but spend time with simply a couple of tracks from this astonishingly well performed and equally superb recording technique (Jim Anderson and Akihiro Nishimura need to be credited) and the praise is bound to be understood.

Jane Ira Bloom is the 'star' soprano saxophone ('& live electronics") here and she is gifted. Not only has she technically master her instrument as well as any classical musician of this instrument, but she also adds the glamour of knowing how to make the sax sound like a human voice singing from the heart. She is simply amazing. The CD combines her own very excellent compositions (especially 'Ending Red Songs', 'Her Exacting Light' and the title song) with a solo spin on a tune from 'My Fair Lady' - an apropos metaphor - showing us just how far her creativity can carry 'I could have danced all night'! Mesmerizing.

Bloom works with first-rate musicians - Dawn Clement, piano (both regular and Fender Rhodes), Mark Helias, bass, and Bobby Previte, drums: listen to their perfect unison and phrasing on 'Airspace' opening! Many of Blooms compositions are so complex and well written they could easily be programmed on classical contemporary music programs. Bloom's resume reads like an outline of how extensive one musician's influence can go; she is far more than just an accomplished musician and composer - she has enhanced the fields of film, dance, teaching, lecturing, and improving the status of mankind! This is one fine album (in every way) brought to us by a truly exemplary human being. Grady Harp, January 11

4.0 out of 5 stars Like an Impressionist Painting January 29, 2014
By S. Mar
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There is no questioning the fine musicianship in this offering from Jane Ira Bloom. However, for me, this course has left me feeling slightly unsatisfied. This is contemplative music, but is less jazz and more impressionistic. Bobby Previte's obtuse leanings are evident in this recording. I prefer the past, more bop/ post-bop oriented music from Bloom. This is like trying to digest sunlight and air, wonderful and enjoyable in spots - but, as a whole, not that filling.
