Jeff Oster, trumpet and flugelhorn player, is our guest today. Think Miles meets Enya. As one of the few trumpet/flugelhorn artists working in ambient terrain, Jeff Oster draws from a rich background of classically trained, jazz tinged horn study, mixed with contemporary electronica and loop based electro-orchestral bed tracks. He began playing trumpet at the age of eight. After years of study in classical and jazz he moved to L.A. in 1979 to pursue a career full time in music. Honing his live performance skills in Las Vegas and Lake Tahoe, and Atlantic City, and working the LA club scene for decades, Jeff has developed a presence in live performance that has to be seen (and heard) to be believed. Jeff soon began working with producer Will Ackerman, Grammy winning guitarist and founder of Windham Hill Records. Together they have recorded two albums, RELEASED and TRUE. Both albums have been voted by broadcasters worldwide as Album of the Year, both have reached #1 on Echoes, the nationally syndicated NPR radio program. Jeff's songs have won Best New Age Song at the 2006 and 2008 Independent Music Awards, and the music continues to receive airplay on XM/Sirius, Music Choice and many other programs worldwide.
