Jeff Oster

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.

In 2003 Jeff began to create loop based soundscapes using  the computer software program Sonic Acid. Uploading his music to MP3.com, his  songs topped the ambient charts for months, with tens thousands of downloads  and streams worldwide.

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.

Contributors to Jeff’s recordings have included Bruce  Swedien, legendary mixing engineer of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Steely Dan’s  drummer Keith Carlock, Grammy nominated artists Philip Aaberg, Eugene Friesen,  Michael Manring, and many other fine artists.

Jeff’s goal is simply to play the music he loves with the  finest musicians on the planet, and to find new and creative ways to share the  warm sound of his horn with listeners and fans worldwide. Click here for the music.
