" Baum's rich and fresh voicings for her longtime septet, whether playing melodies or in counterpoint, are most responsible for the laudable success of all the pieces on this CD …a major statement by flutist, composer and arranger Jamie Baum...endlessly imaginative…notably inspired throughout " – Jazz Times

“ **** (four stars) Exemplaire…a remarkable disc…” — Jazzman (France)

“Adventurous flutist Jamie Baum works the angles and corners of the jazz mainstream… on Solace, (she) offers a generous program of her compositions …a welcome take on that ongoing wrestling match between composition and improvisation.” – DownBeat

“When Baum releases a new album, many modern jazz aficionados take notice. Her musical journey offers the drama and intensity of a cinematic thriller or cliffhanger, which is sure to keep her audience at the edge of their seats.”– All About Jazz
