    NYC flutist, composer, recording artist, and clinician, Jamie Baum, has toured the United States and over 30 countries performing at major festivals and concert halls including The Monterey and London Jazz Festivals, Tampere Jazz Happening, North Sea Jazz Festival, and Guimaraes Jazz Festival alongside artists such as George Russell, Randy Brecker, Donald Brown, Mick Goodrick, Tom Harrell, and Kenny Barron. 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 to compose or arrange “short stories” that set the tone for this unique instrumentation and a top-flight group of musicians. Come enjoy an evening of short stories with Jamie Baum.
