Great Little Combo Album

Carl Saunders is probably the best trumpet player you haven't heard of. You've probably heard him play on countless albums or in studio work, but he isn't as widely known as he should be. In this live set, Carl Saunders and his group present an awe inspiring set that is brilliant and flashy, yet musically very tasty. I had never heard of Carl Saunders until I heard him on a public radio jazz hour. I called in, because I had to know who in the world that was. It happened to be One Note Samba from this album, and immmediately went out and bought this. If you're looking for a straight up combo feel with some standards in there, this is an album not to pass up! The rhythm section is top notch, with Christian Jacob on piano, Dave Stone on bass, and Santo Savino on drums. This is my favorite album of his. All of the tracks are worth listening to and transcribing. In particular, One Note Samba, There Will Never Be Another You, Yesterdays, and the title track are great.

Saunders picked up experience touring with Benny Goodman, Charlie Barnet, Harry James, Buddy Rich, and Maynard Ferguson (1967), and played regularly in show bands in Las Vegas until moving to Los...
