Trumpeter Augie Haas has released “Have You Met Miss Jones,” the second single from his forthcoming album Have We Met, due to be released on July 20. Augie is one of the most in-demand trumpet players in New York, having worked with artists such as Harry Connick, Jr., The Maria Schneider Orchestra and The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, and is currently a regular member of the orchestra for Aladdin on Broadway.
Augie says of the album, “I am excited, not just for the new single ‘Have You Met Miss Jones,’ but for the entire record. With time moving faster than ever, we wanted to create music that encourages people to pour a cocktail, close their eyes, and forget about life’s troubles. I’m Augie Haas; have we met?”
Born and raised in Milwaukee, Augie earned his Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies at Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of the Performing Arts. After Chicago, he attended The University of Miami’s Frost School of Music Conservatory for a Masters in Studio Music in Jazz and a Doctorate in Musical Arts.
Augie has released four albums under his co-founded label Playtime Music: The Llama, Doing it Augie Style, Baby Jazz, and his latest album Endless, featuring all original compositions. Most recently he published his first book entitled Build Your Range.
