About Sixteen Sunsets:
Award winning soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom has always had a special feeling for ballad performances. So much so that she has now finally released: Sixteen Sunsets, a beautiful new recording featuring expressive interpretations from the American Songbook along with five compelling slow tempo original compositions.
The fourteen tracks on Sixteen Sunsets feature nine American songbook classics including: Gershwin's ''I Loves You Porgy,'' Kern's ''The Way You Look Tonight,'' Arlen's ''Out of This World,'' Weill's ''My Ship,'' Jimmy Van Heusen's ''Darn That Dream,'' and Billie Holiday & Mal Waldron's ''Left Alone,'' among others. There are also five originals from Bloom s ballad repertoire including: ''What She Wanted,'' ''Ice Dancing'' (for Torvill & Dean), ''Gershwin's Skyline,'' ''Too Many Reasons,'' and ''Bird Experiencing Light.'' Photographic legend Jay Maisel contributed his breathtaking image: ''Maine Forest At Dawn'' for the album cover art. He picked the image from his archives after listening to the CD and the synchronicity is startling.
The album was recorded in 5.1 high-resolution Surround Sound at New York's famed Avatar Studio B by renowned engineer Jim Anderson who also co-produced and pushed the envelope of how a jazz quartet could sound using this technique. JIB felt that 'Surround' was a perfect match for the soprano sax because the sound doesn't emanate directly from the bell of the horn, it radiates out in all directions from the instrument in a more diffuse way. The saxophone was literally surrounded by a satellite array of mics for the sessions, and JIB's playing style was very well suited to the technique since she is always moving when playing. She recalls: ''I've always been interested how sound changes when it moves and the doppler-like effect that I create when I sweep the bell of the horn past the microphones really comes through vividly in surround-sound.'' Sixteen Sunsets will be submitted for consideration in the 2014 Grammy sound surround category.
About Jane Ira Bloom

Jane Ira Bloom has been developing her unique voice on the soprano sax for over 30 years. A pioneer in the use of live electronics and movement in jazz, she is a six-time winner of the Jazz Journalists Award for Soprano Saxophone, winner of the Downbeat International Critics Poll for soprano sax, and a recipient of the prestigious Guggenheim fellowship. Her continued commitment to new music has led to collaborations with Charlie Haden, Ed Blackwell, Kenny Wheeler, Rufus Reid, Matt Wilson, Bob Brookmeyer, Julian Priester, Ingrid Jenson, Bobby Previte, Billy Hart, Mark Helias, Marc Copland and Fred Hersch among others.
''It took a while to get my voice to come through the soprano saxophone, and after all these years I feel like the instrument has really become my voice. I hope when people hear the sax on the new recording they can almost touch the sound, feel the attack, the decay, hear fingers gliding across the keys and get a sense that a voice is coming through.''

Same-sex desire in particular has been, up until the present moment, a topic largely shrouded in shame, secrecy, and silence. As a result, it is often visualized through the image of ‘the closet,’ conveying notions of entrapment, protection, and potential liberation. Dominic Janes, author of Picturing the Closet: Male Secrecy and Homosexual Visibility in Britain , recently sat down with us to talk about the visualization of same-sex desire in eighteenth-century Britain to the present. How can you picture ‘the closet. This is what Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick attacked in her book, Epistemology of the Closet (1990), through conceptualizing the closet as ‘the defining structure for gay oppression in this century. Moreover, she argued, the role of the ‘camply’ effeminate man was deployed in order to create a spectacle of the closet as an open secret. As the preface to the second (2008) edition of her book made clear, Sedgwick had not merely been exploring the category of the homosexual as a homophobic creation, but had been doing so at a time when the experience of AIDS had led to a massive... Something that was particularly dangerous about the closet at this time was that it implied that only a small proportion of the population possessed problematic forms of sexual desire since only they, the flamboyant few, were clearly visible. How can you picture ‘the closet’ prior to the twentieth century, when the term first came into use. The force of Sedgwick’s arguments presented clear evidence for the phenomenon of the closet before that particular term came into use. It might be best to say that there is a history of closet-like formations that relate to the fear or reality of being revealed as say, a sodomite in the nineteenth century, a homosexual in the early twentieth century, or as gay in the decades... This means you can ask to extent people thought they could identify an ‘obvious’ sodomite before the construction of the homosexual as a type of person during the latter part of the nineteenth century. Moreover, we can ask what roles secrecy and denial played in relation to the visual expression of same-sex desire before the term ‘the closet’ came into widespread use in the latter part of the twentieth century. The cover of Picturing the Closet uses part of a fascinating print, ‘How d’Ye Like Me,’. Source: blog.oup.com

From the conversion of the emperor Constantine in the early fourth century, vast sums of money were spent on the building and sumptuous decoration of churches. The resulting works of art contain many of the greatest monuments of late antique and early medieval society. But how did such expenditure fit with Christ's message of poverty and simplicity? In attempting to answer that question, this 1998 study employs theories on the use of metaphor to show how physical beauty could stand for spiritual excellence. As well as explaining the evolving attitudes to sanctity, decorum and display in Roman and medieval society, detailed analysis is made of case studies of Latin biblical exegesis and gold-ground mosaics so as to counterpoint the contemporary use of gold as a Christian image in art and text.
