Album Notes
"Music is the sound track of people's life. Aaron's compositions are poetic running water with gyroscopic textures and shapes. And his trumpet playing outlines his extremely talented and sincere musical artistry. Brilliant, Bravo!" Tiger Okoshi

"Bahr is a detail man: He writes for large ensembles, taking care to bring out small melodic ideas. Prologue includes four incandescent suites, a horn-plumped Beatles cover, and a nod to Miles."- East Bay Express

Aaron Bahr is a trumpet player and composer from the California Bay Area. He is a graduate from Berklee College of Music in Boston where he was the 2008 Jimmy Lyons Scholar. While attending Berklee, he had the pleasure of performing and studying with such artists as Greg Hopkins, Tiger Okoshi, Phil Wilson, Maria Schneider, Ron Carter, Dave Liebman, among many others. He plans to continue his studies at New England Conservatory in their Master's in Jazz Composition program.

Aaron is devoted to making music that is musically lush, rich with orchestration, but always devoted to simple, singable melodies. He believes that music does not need to sacrifice quality or expression in the name of mass-appeal; that music can be complicated but made from the simplest building blocks and be made into something everyone can enjoy.
