(February 2011) Jane Ira Bloom (born Boston, Massachusetts, 1955) is an American jazz soprano saxophonist and composer. Contents 1 Biography 2 Selected discography 3 References 4 External links Biography She began as a pianist and drummer, later switching to the alto saxophone, and eventually settling on the soprano saxophone as her primary instrument. She first began playing the saxophone seriously while at Yale University, from which she received a liberal arts degree and a master's degree in music. Following Yale, Bloom relocated to New York City. She has worked with Mark Dresser, Bobby Previte, Kenny Wheeler, Charlie Haden, Bob Brookmeyer, Julian Priester, Jay Clayton, Fred Hersch, Jin Hi Kim, and Min Xiao-Fen. She is noted for her use of live electronics, using a foot pedal to trigger various electronic effects that alter the sound of her saxophone, at times creating the illusion of an orchestra of soprano saxophones. She was the first musician to be commissioned by the NASA Art Program; in 1989 she created three original musical compositions: Most Distant Galaxy, for soprano saxophone and live electronics, prepared tape, bass, drums, and electroacoustic percussion; Fire & Imagination, for soprano saxophone, improvisors, and chamber orchestra; and Beyond the Sky, for wind ensemble.[1][2][3] The asteroid 6083 Janeirabloom was named after her.[1] In 2007, she was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in music composition. Bloom is presently a core faculty member at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City's Greenwich Village.
