Introducing..... Andrew Baham Songs
From the soulfulness that he displays in his ballads, to the belligerent nature of the burn-out, Andrew Baham is driven to become a major thrust in the music industry. He began playing the trumpet at age 11, elysian by the discipline and appeal of the marching bands in New Orleans. From that time on, Andrew's love for music grew stronger . While in junior high, he attempted to arrange music for the band, earning respect and accolade from his fellow band members.
Around the same time a friend (and now fellow musician James Alsanders) talked Andrew into auditioning for the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (commonly referred to as NOCCA), an arts high school in New Orleans that has a long list of acclaimed artists such as Terence Blanchard, the Marsalis Family, Harry Connick Jr., world-renowned actor Wendell Pierce, and many others. At NOCCA, Andrew had formal lessons on the trumpet by Ronald Benko, of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, renowned trumpeter and educator Clyde Kerr, Jr., and even Grammy Award Winner Nicholas Payton. In 1998, he received an endorsed trumpet from the Yamaha Corporation of America and became the first recipient of the Doc Cheatham Memorial Scholarship.
Baham has performed with a number of different artists which include Grammy Nominee Los Hombres Calientes, Criss Cross Jazz Artist Adonis Rose, and a one year stint with pianist and educator Ellis Marsalis. He has recorded with up and coming alto saxophonist Darryl Reeves, the Soul Rebels Brass Band and the Lil' Stooges Brass Band. Baham is also making an appearance in the movie " Unchain My Heart: The Ray Charles Story". He currently performs with his own group and trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis.
Recently, Andrew has released his very first album as a leader. It features some of the best new talent that New Orleans has to offer: James Alsanders on drums, Aaron Fletcher on alto saxophone, Nori Naraoka on bass, Jesse Lewis on Guitar, Samir Zarif on tenor saxophone, Brian Coogan and Jesse McBride on piano. A true must buy for people who are into jazz with a progression into the future.
