Jamie Baum is a first-rate improvising flutist, but it's as a bandleader, arranger and composer that she's really made a durable mark on the local scene. Her albums, the latest of which is the heady, South Asian–inspired In This Life, are always gripping affairs. Expect to hear from that disc here, as Baum gigs with her trademark septet. Also on board is veteran singer-guitarist Leni Stern, a jazz and African-music specialist, appearing here with Malian bassist Mamadou Ba and percussionist-vocalist Alioune Faye.
