“The poet of the soprano saxophone” returns to University of the Streets with a special program of only ballads with bassist Dean Johnson and pianist Dominic Fallacaro. Long known for the intense lyricism, breath and allure of her saxophone sound, Bloom has put together an evening of American songbook standards andoriginal ballads that showcase what she does best – playing slow. From KurtWeill’s “Lost in the Stars” to Lerner & Loewe’s “On the Street Where You Live” Bloom shows how less is more when you know the words. Don’t miss this one time special performance.

“Bloom’s tone is a sonic wonder; crystal clear like a full moon on a starless

  night”                                                    – George W. Harris, jazzweekly.com

arguably the soprano’s most distinctive and major voice… beautiful, exciting, and adventurous”                    Bob Protzman/Erie Times-News
