Multi-woodwind virtuoso Kristen Strom "embodies her musical philosophy in every note she plays" (San Jose Mercury News). It's a musical philosophy based on versatility, beauty, and communication, and it has made her one of the Bay Area's most in-demand musicians.

In addition to leading her own groups, she has performed with Natalie Cole, Jimmy Heath, the San Jose Symphony, the Nuclear Whales Saxophone Quartet, and many more. Her work in the group Crossing Borders with Canadian vocalist/pianist Jennifer Scott has earned critical praise and made fans all over North America. The Palo Alto Daily News called her 2005 album Intention "mesmerizing," and described her as "among the finest contemporary sax players."

Not only a versatile performer, Strom is a committed educator and advocate for jazz music. She teaches saxophone at Santa Clara University, coordinates education for the San Jose Jazz Society, and is a long-time member of the Stanford Jazz Workshop faculty. With a sensational lineup of Stanford Jazz musicians, the Kristen Strom Quintet plays strongly melodic music straight from the heart with subtlety and style.
