Jaared (pronounced exactly like Jared) (born Jaared Arosemena in Washington, DC on January 20, 1967) is a Washington, DC-based contemporary jazz saxophonist.[1] In 2002 he was nominated the Best New Artist of the Year for 2002 by The National Smooth Jazz Association [2]

Jaared suffered from asthma as a child, and almost died on from the chronic lung disease. His doctor told his family that learning to play a wind instrument would strengthen his lungs, and Jaared chose the Alto Sax.[3]

Jaared tours with a famous British contemporary jazz guitarist Peter White.[4]

Jaared is a regular guest on the most popular Smooth Jazz Internet radio program in the world, the Jimi King show, which airs EST 12- 2 pm on Sundays.[5]
