Long an experimenter in new chamber jazz textures and milieus, New York-based flutist/composer Jamie Baum accomplishes her biggest artistic and compositional breakthrough with the stellar In This Life, inspired by the music of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and inspired by her travels in South Asia.

Baum’s musical imagination and skills are not limited by her origins or circumstances – instead, they are enriched by her experiences. They help her realize In This Life, a suite of pieces for her newly mintedSeptet+ (an evolution of the longstanding and renowned Jamie Baum Septet). The recording is exciting, beguiling, memorable, warm, virtuosic and multi-layered. It is one of those treasured recordings that pulls you in, revealing more and more depth with each subsequent hearing.
