What Critics Are Saying About Sixteen Sunsets…

2014 Grammy nominee for Best Surround Sound Album

"Jazz Mastery, Undiluted…In nearly 78 minutes of intensely concentrated playing, Jane Ira Bloom's album offers some of the greatest ballad performances I have ever heard."
- Steve Elman, The Arts Fuse

"Bloom has one of the prettiest, clearest tones around on soprano. She never sounds better than on can tell she knows the words."
- Kevin Whitehead/ NPR

"Sidney Bechet...John Coltrane...Steve Lacy....The name Jane Ira Bloom can be added to that list of icons. Bloom has used the soprano saxophone to give voice to fertile and uncompromising artistic spirit. "
- Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz

"Bloom has achieved something many more-famous players never find: an instantly identifiable sound based in intense lyricism and striking melodies."
- Steve Smith, TimeOut NY
