Out of the Blue


  • Year: 1999

Carl Saunders, Trumpet

Rated as a five star CD in the September, 1998 issue of the ITG Journal, this CD features Jazz trumpeter Carl Saunders who indeed steps out of the blue and into the spotlight. It has been said of Saunders that he is the best trumpet player that you have never heard…until now! Seems impossible considering that he toured with Stan Kenton at the age of 17 and through the years has performed with Benny Goodman, Charlie Barnett, Harry James, Si Zentner, Buddy Rich and Maynard Ferguson. His recording credits are endless including gigs with Sammy Davis Jr., Paul Anka, Horace Silver, Bob Florence, Louie Bellson and numerous other jazz greats. Here he appears with his own jazz sextet on a wonderful CD that will earn him his due respect among jazz trumpeters.
