Jane Ira Bloom Plays Emily Dickinson @ Kennedy Center, Oct 14
Wild Lines: Jane Ira Bloom Plays Emily Dickinson at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts this Friday, October 14th at 7 & 9 pm.
Featuring: Dawn Clement, Bobby Previte, Kent McLagen, & actor Deborah Rush.
In this new work, which features jazz quartet and spoken word, 21st-century soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom explores the poetry of 19th-century visionary Emily Dickinson. The ensemble is complemented by pianist Dawn Clement, bassist Kent McLagan, drummer Bobby Previte, and actress Deborah Rush. A perennial winner in the Jazz Station Annual Awards, Bloom is regarded as a pioneer in the use of live electronics and movement in jazz, as well as a strong proponent for multidisciplinary collaborations with other art forms, such as painting, film, theater, and dance.
Performance Timing: 75 minutes, with no intermission.
This program is made possible with support from Chamber Music America's 2015 New Jazz Works Program funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
