Editorial Reviews

Review

Absolutely mesmerizing! --John Henry, Audiophile Audition

It's a singular thrill to hear classic songs The Way You Look Tonight and I Loves You Porgy delivered with such a pristine, magical and downright futuristic presence. Sixteen Sunsets…shows the infinite possibilities of the soprano sax. --Marc Phillips, The Vinyl Anachronist

Take a deep breath, even if you have not heard of this sterling artist, put on the recording, and hear sounds that you've never heard before. Jane Ira Bloom sings to us with her soprano sax and the experience is unforgettable. Prepare to be mesmerized. This is some of the most beautiful instrumental music around. --Grady Harp, Hall of Fame Top 50 reviewer

A gently lyrical set that takes a lot of chestnuts to places they haven't been before... With taste to spare, Bloom delivers a real career defining kind of set that only a tried and true vet knows how to deliver. A winner throughout.

--Chris Spector, Midwest Record

2014 Grammy Nominee for best surround sound album --Grammy.com

2013 Artists Picks - One of the most well-known historical precursors to Sixteen Sunsets is, of course, Coltrane's Ballads, which likewise features a sax-led quartet interpreting an album's worth of timeless romantic standards. Fifty years after Coltrane's recording first appeared, Bloom perpetuates the tradition with a beautiful one of her own that can't be praised too highly. -Textura



The soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom projects her tone as a round, silvery beam, warm and diffuse along the edges but pinpoint-clear at the center on Sixteen Sunsets. …glows with meditative intent, even as Ms. Bloom dopplers her soprano across the sonic plane. -Nate Chinen, NY Times --New York Times



One of the very best jazz records of the year... Not only is this one of the best jazz discs of the year, its, without doubt, one of the most beautiful records soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom has ever made in a recording life that has been replete with the sublime. --Jeff Simon, Buffalo News

Sidney Bechet...John Coltrane...Steve Lacy....The name Jane Ira Bloom can be added to that list of icons. Bloom has used the soprano saxophone to give voice to fertile and uncompromising artistic spirit... Her most beautiful recording to date. --Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz

Recorded in stunning hi-resolution, Sixteen Sunsets, is awe-inspiring and mesmerizing to behold. --Hrayr Attarian, All About Jazz

Jazz Mastery, Undiluted...In nearly 78 minutes of intensely concentrated playing, Jane Ira Blooms album offers some of the greatest ballad performances I have ever heard. --Steve Elman, The Arts Fuse

4 stars ****It is the raw poignancy of the emotion that shines through...the beauty of Bloom s tone that is most prominent. Each song offers a demonstration of immaculate control and imaginative phrasing and attack. --James Hale, Downbeat

Bloom has one of the prettiest, clearest tones around on soprano. She never sounds better than on ballads....you can tell she knows the words. --Kevin Whitehead, NPR

*****A rapt album of deep after-midnight atmospheres...Blooms soprano keeps sweeping free of melodies with embellishments driven by the joy of creativity. --Thomas Conrad, Stereophile

Bloom has one of the prettiest, clearest tones around on soprano. She never sounds better than on ballads....you can tell she knows the words.Kevin Whitehead,NPR

Whether interpreting classic ballads or gliding gracefully through her compositions, Bloom is sublime. This is an album...of beauty fully realized.

---Martin Z. Kasdan Jr., Louisville Music News

B --K --Kevin Whitehead, NPR

2014 NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll --Francis Davis, NPR

Bloom has one of the prettiest, clearest tones around on soprano. She never sounds better than on ballads....you can tell she knows the words. --Kevin Whitehead, NPR
