Sixteen Sunsets http://wrti.org en Too Much Of A Good Thing? Jane Ira Bloom's Beautiful Ballads http://wrti.org/post/too-much-good-thing-jane-ira-blooms-beautiful-ballads When soprano saxophonist <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/87942215/jane-ira-bloom">Jane Ira Bloom</a> plays <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15235424/kurt-weill">Kurt Weill</a>'s "My Ship" on her new album <em>Sixteen Sunsets</em>, a pale glow around her notes comes from a simple special effect: pointing her horn under the hood of a piano whose strings are free to resonate. Bloom has always been preoccupied with sound, and has one of the prettiest, clearest tones around on soprano.
