Jane Ira Bloom set to 'key in the morning' on Deutschlandfunk Kultur

Bookmark and Share

On Monday, August 26 / Key in the morning at 11:45 am, Deutschlandfunk Kultur presents a Portrait of the soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom. The soprano saxophone is not always taken for full in jazz, quite often it is additional instrument to alto or tenor saxophone. A few musicians have focused exclusively on the higher, usually unbent, saxophone. From a distance it is easy to confuse it with a clarinet, but the sound is sharper and more pressure. A musician who can only be experienced on the soprano saxophone is Jane Ira Bloom. The US saxophonist is an icon in music circles, but beyond the jazz circle she is not well known.
