Jaared Jaared

PA virtuoso on the alto, soprano, and tenor saxophones, as well as the unique EWI breath controller, Jaared is an internationally acclaimed recording artist. He is also an accomplished singer, who often brings the house down with his vocals.

Jaared entered the Washington, D.C., music scene at a very young age, rapidly gaining prominence for his work on the alto sax. As he continued as a full-time entertainer, he received more and more recognition for his music, and was soon known to audiences all over the world. Always wanting to keep things fresh, Jaared chose to expand his musical message with the soprano sax, EWI, and tenor sax, and now plays all three, while continuing with his main voice, the alto sax. His soaring soprano is one of the sweetest you will ever hear.

In 2002, Jaared was nominated as ‘Best New Artist of the Year’ by the National Smooth Jazz Association. The beauty of his playing and his ability to connect with his audience, whether recorded or live, has gained him international acclaim. His first release, Foreward, included a remake of the Chante Moore song, “Love’s Taken Over.” Jaared’s version hit the charts in the United Kingdom, Japan, and the United States. Jaared’s other releases include Hangtime, Addiction, and his latest, Manhattan Nights. He is signed to Trippin ‘N’ Rhythm Records, an international label associated with Sony/BMG.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
