“A New York flutist, Ms. Baum has been recording with expanded small bands since the late ’90s; she’s into tone color and timbre and the blending of languages, jazz, and 20th-century classical and Afro-Latin music. But she’s got an elegantly persuasive composing hand…her composing ideas have gotten particularly strong on In This Life (Sunnyside).There are no pedantic mixtures here; she makes what she takes from classical minimalism and Indian qawwali mix together and feel natural.”
