Though focusing primarily on jazz, she has been involved in several projects, performances and tours performing classical, new music, Brazilian and Latin music.
Ms. Baum has been in the DownBeat Critics Polls annually since 1998, winning #3 in the 2014 Top Flutists category and # 1 Rising Star Flutist in 2012. She was nominated by the Jazz Journalists Association for "Flutist of the Year " seven times, including 2014 and her band The Jamie Baum Septet+ was also been nominated in 2014 as "Best Midsize Ensemble of the Year" - in the same list with only two other bands -The Wayne Shorter Quartet and Steve Coleman and Five Elements!

A clinician for Altus Flutes, they have sponsored her innovative, pioneering clinic "A Fear Free Approach to Improvisation for the Classically-Trained Musician" at colleges, festivals and "music and art" schools worldwide since 1993.
For almost 30 years, Altus has hand-crafted flutes that embody the ideals of vintage inspiration and modern technology. The meticulous design of the Altus flute and its acclaimed Altus/Bennet scales offers excellent intonation, carefully tuned harmonics and balanced registers. The masterfully hand-sculpted headjoints and precision tubings produce the remarkable sound of the Altus flute.
