Iraqi-American musician Amir ElSaffar has created techniques for the trumpet in order to play the microtones and ornaments found in Arabic music but not typically heard on brass. As a composer, he has developed an innovative approach to harmony and melody, as heard in his commissions for jazz ensembles, Chamber Orchestras and Middle Eastern Ensembles alike.
