One jazz music's premier soprano saxophonists, Jane Ira Bloom, crafted a career-defining recording with Sixteen Sunsets (Outline Records, 2013). So how does she follow that up? With an alteration of her quartet trajectory. Bloom's recorded output has consisted, over a career that began in the late 90s, of a series of mostly quartet sets, featuring terrific pianists, including Fred Hersch and Jamie Saft and Dominic Fallacaro in the piano chair. For Early Americans, the piano disappears, and Bloom goes with the trio approach: soprano, bass and drums.

Jane Ira Bloom is among the still-small number of jazz saxophonists to have concentrated primarily on the soprano (though many play it as a second or third horn), and she has been at it for quite a while now. In fact, Early Americans is Bloom’s 16th release under her own name (her debut recording appeared in 1978). Although Bloom has been associated with some fairly avant-garde players, her own concerns are fairly straight and straightforward, apart from an occasional use of subtle electronic effects. She deals with melodies and improvisations that are easy to follow and develop naturally

Jane Ira Bloom (born January 12, 1955) is an American jazz soprano saxophonist and composer. Bloom was born in Boston, Massachusetts, to Joel and Evelyn Bloom. She began as a pianist and drummer, later switching to the alto saxophone, and eventually settling on the soprano saxophone as her primary instrument.

Jane Ira Bloom's "Early Americans" is Right on Time. Brilliant soprano sax with great sidemen. Jane Ira Bloom does what she wants when she wants and she always makes it sing. She has just released Early Americans, her sixth album for Outline Records (OTL 142) and her sixteenth as a leader. It is, however, her first trio album and I’m glad I was here to witness it. The album is composed almost entirely by Jane Ira Bloom with the single exception of Leonard Bernstein’s Somewhere. Joining her are long-time associates Mark Helias on bass and Bobby Previte on drums.
