Andrew Baham Visits WWOZ

Tag(s): Show host blog

Brilliant young trumpeter Andrew Baham will visit Jelly Roll Justice this Thursday, January 24th, to talk about his gig at Snug Harbor later that night at 8 and 10 p.m.

 

Baham began playing the trumpet at age 11 --- inspired by the discipline and appeal of the marching bands in New Orleans. In junior high he arranged music for the band which lead his fellow musician James Alsanders to talk Andrew into auditioning for the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA).

At NOCCA Andrew received lessons from Ronald Benko of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, renowned trumpeter and educator Clyde Kerr, Jr., and Grammy Award Winner Nicholas Payton. In 1998 he became the first recipient of the Doc Cheatham Memorial Scholarship. 

Baham has performed with artists Mystikal, Mannie Fresh, Los Hombres Calientes, Adonis Rose, and The Ellis Marsalis Quinet. He has production credits with The Stooges Brass Band's "It's About Time", Big Sam's Funky Nation' "King Of The Party", and others.   He has recorded with Darryl Reeves, The Original Tuxedo Jazz Band, the Soul Rebels Brass Band and the Lil' Stooges Brass Band.
 
When he's not performing with funk powerhouse Big Sam's Funky Nation, Baham leads his own jazz Quintet performing music from his latest release "And They Called It Love".
