Hailed by Downbeat for her �remarkable artistic facility� and by The New York Times for her �remarkable balance of fluidity and restless creativity,� New York-based flutist/composer and 2014 Guggenheim Fellow Jamie Baum is proud to announce the release of her sixth CD as a leader, Bridges, featuring The Jamie Baum Septet+. The highly anticipated follow-up to her 2013 recording In This Life, Bridges offers yet another recording of incredible depth, beauty, spirituality, undiluted zeal and is the culmination of Baum�s search for common links between some of the world�s great religious music traditions. While conducting research for her Guggenheim Fellowship Award, Baum explains, �I found there to be very deep connections going back centuries, between certain types of Jewish music (my earliest musical influences), and Muslim/Arabic and Hindu/South Asian music.� Exploring these musical connections, and composing new music inspired by her findings, became the focus of Bridges.
