Atlas Presents Jazz: Jamie Baum & Short Stories
Jamie Baum, known for her award-winning Septet+ that features her global-influenced, increasingly complex and long-form compositions, formed Short Stories to complement and expand her palette. With an emphasis on improvisation, her inspiration came from the short but eloquent, harmonic and motivically-packed compositions by such jazz icons as Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk. Combined with the excitement and drive of the modern “jazz standard”, Baum strives in this setting to compose or arrange “short stories” that set the tone for this unique instrumentation and top-flight group of musicians.
