NYC jazz flutist/composer, Sunnyside Records artist and 2014 Guggenheim Fellow, Jamie Baum, has just finished her 6th CD, Bridges with The Jamie Baum Septet+, due out in May ‘18. Jamie has toured in over 30 countries, and worked/recorded with a long list of renowned and diverse jazz artists including Randy Brecker, Donald Brown, Mick Goodrick, Tom Harrell and Kenny Barron to Dave Douglas, Fred Hersch, Uri Caine, Ralph Alessi, David Binney, Anthony Braxton and Wadada Leo Smith. She’s been nominated by the Jazz Journalists Association for “Flutist of Year“ 8 times and places in DownBeat polls annually since 1998.

Baum, known for her award-winning Septet+ (of 19 years) that features her global-influenced, complex and long-form compositions, formed Short Stories with an emphasis on improvisation. Inspired by the short but eloquent, tunes by such jazz icons as Shorter, Monk and Miles, Baum strives with each piece to explore a particular vibe or concept. Short Stories features a core quartet of NYC’s finest with recurring guests including Gregoire Maret and Gilad Hekselman.

Short Stories made its debut performance on January 2015 as part of Jazz Resolutions 2015 during the NYC APAP/Winter JazzFest weekend, and was filmed an put in rotation by Europe jazz channel Mezzo/Kidem. Since then, performances have included NYC’s Jazz Gallery, Jazz Standard, the Kitano and tours in the US and Canada.

"Ms. Baum brings a remarkable balance of fluidity and restless creativity to her work as a post-bop flutist and composer. She plays with a range of ensembles, but it’s hard to beat "Short Stories”…" - Giovanni Russonello, The New York Times
