Jess Gillam is the trailblazing young artist forging a new path in classical music and carving out a new repertoire landscape for her instrument – the saxophone. Curated by Gillam herself, Time features music rooted in minimalism, with a track sequence shaped to mirror the flow of energy in a 24-hour cycle. The album is centered around Michael Nyman's virtuosic Where the Bee Dances concerto, framed by shorter tracks from pioneering and genre-breaking artists and composers.

For September 30 2020, Jess Gillam's 'Time' is the WFMT: Chicago 'Featured New Release'
