Baum, Wessel, and Harris

Flutist Jamie Baum, guitarist Ken Wessel, and bass guitarist Jerome Harris celebrated the 100th Birthday of Louis Armstrong during their March-April tour of Thailand, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, and India, a trip postponed from October 2001. They reprise their tour performances in tonight’s Millennium Stage concert. Flutist and composer Jamie Baum’s first tour as a Kennedy Center/Department of State Jazz Ambassador took place in Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic in October 1999. She has lived in New York for twelve years, working as a leader, as well as a band member for others including Paul Motian, Randy Brecker, Billy Hart, Mick Goodrick, and George Russell. Baum has developed a powerful personal style from her many influences of jazz, blues, and Latin cultures.
