Jane Ira Bloom

Soprano saxophonist/composer Jane Ira Bloom has received international accolades for her unique artistry and compelling sound. An original and creative contributor to adventurous Jazz for over 20 years, and a winner of the 'DownBeat' International Critics Poll for soprano saxophone, Ms. Bloom’s work was cited by 'Time Magazine' in its special issue, "Women: The Road Ahead."

With a particular interest in exploring the relationships of music, motion and electronics, she is the first musician to be commissioned by the NASA Art Program, and was recently honored by having an asteroid named for her - Asteroid 6082JaneIraBloom.

Ms. Bloom has also been profiled on 'CBS Sunday Morning' and appeared on CNBC’s 'America After Hours,' PBS’ 'Behind the Scenes,' USA Network’s 'Inside Space' and in the film, 'Reed Royalty.'

Her performances include the Paris, Berlin, Montreal and JVC Jazz Festivals, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Town Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian’s Einstein Planetarium, and many clubs and concert halls throughout the country. She has received commissions to create works for the American Composers Orchestra and the Pilobolus Dance Company, and composed music for the TV movie 'Shadow of A Doubt' on NBC. She has also collaborated with classical composers premiering new works for soprano saxophone (August Read Thomas/Lincoln Center).

With eight critically acclaimed albums under her own name, her 'Art and Aviation' CD on Arabesque Jazz made the list of the year’s best Jazz albums in publications including 'JazzTimes,' the 'Village Voice' and 'CD Review.' Her most recent release on Arabesque, 'The Nearness' has been similarly received and shows the continued progress of this provocative artist.
