She is paired with long-time bandmates Mark Helias on bass and drummer Bobby Previte and together they have over 50 years of shared musical history together. She brought the group together to record in surround sound for two days in July 2016 at Avatar Studio B with renowned audio engineer and co-producer Jim Anderson. The Grammy winning surround project was mixed by Jim Anderson and mastered by Darcy Proper. The recording features twelve Bloom originals ranging from the rhythmic drive of Song Patrol and Singing The Triangle to the spare melancholy of Mind Gray River. She closes the album with a signature solo rendition of the American songbook classic, Bernstein & Sondheim s Somewhere. The trio has always held a special fascination for jazz musicians because playing in threes holds out the possibility that something can always be slightly off balance and that s just what fires the imagination of players like these.

She is a ten-time winner of the Jazz Journalists Award for Soprano Saxophone, a 2017 Downbeat Poll winner for soprano saxophone and recipient of the prestigious Guggenheim fellowship. Don t miss listening in surround sound to these fearless jazz explorers who share a commitment to beauty & adventure.
