Jamie Baum at Firehouse 12

From Improvised Communications:

On Friday, November 14th, New Haven’s Firehouse 12 will present New York flautist/composer Jamie Baum and her longstanding septet as part of the venue’s ongoing 2008 Fall Jazz Series. This decade-old ensemble, featuring Shane Endsley (trumpet and flugelhorn), Doug Yates (alto saxophone and bass clarinet), Chris Komer (French horn), Aaron Goldberg (piano), Johannes Weidenmueller (bass) and Jeff Hirshfield (drums), is on the road celebrating its most recent release, Solace (Sunnyside). The disc, Ms. Baum’s fourth as a leader and second with this band, features ten of her original compositions, including a tribute to pianist Kenny Wheeler and a four-part commissioned suite inspired by composer Charles Ives.
