“Jamie Baum… is really rather unique; she is a fine composer, a technically accomplished flautist and she has ideas and imagination in abundance. Many players have some of these qualities but few possess them all.”
– Derek Ansell, Jazz Journal International (U.K.)

“A gifted flutist in any context, Jamie has constantly shifted direction as a composer and bandleader, recruiting versatile instrumentalists to interpret her demanding music. A master at blending multiple influences into her works…”
– Ken Dryden, Hot House Jazz Magazine

“Offering touches of modernization while remaining steadfast in honoring core values, Baum creates a world where sonic and spiritual resonance rest on an even plane. Even in its most unsettled state, there’s a pronounced sense of purpose lighting the way. There’s clearly no chasm too wide for Baum to cross.”
– Dan Bilawsky, JazzTimes
