Born on a warm Tuesday morning in Canada, only

to be whisked away to Argentina at the tender age

of 1, Michael Sarian is a trumpeter and composer

whose work has been described as “a steady study

in dichotomy. With a wordless elegance, the New

York City-based musician is flexibly firm, loosely

tight, and brightly dark. The innovations within his

compositions are deceptively dramatic with varying

degrees of a melodic sensibility.” (Frank De Blase,

Rochester City Newspaper)

Michael relocated to New York City in 2012 to

pursue a master’s degree in Jazz Studies at New

York University, where he studied with great

musicians such as Laurie Frink, Alan Ferber, Brad

Shepik, Ralph Alessi and Mike Rodriguez. Michael

has performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival, BRIC

JazzFest, Getxo Blues Festival, Blue Note Jazz Club,

Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Beacon Theater, Central

Park SummerStage, Teatro Colón, and has appeared

on WNYC’s Soundcheck with John Schaefer, NPR’s

World Cafe, and many more.

In August of 2018, Michael released LEÓN, the

third album with his septet, Michael Sarian & The

Chabones (Argentine slang for the dudes), his debut

with ZOHO Music. He also leads Michael Sarian &

The Big Chabones, a 16 piece big band alternative.
