Carl Saunders has lived
and worked in relative obscurity for many years. Trumpet players
knew of him for his ability to make the seemingly impossible
be not only possible, but easy and musical.
Yet, whenever he plays in concert, whether with his group
or another, Carl invariably receives standing ovations from
an appreciative audience. Yes, even those who can't play
the trumpet are moved by Carl's ability to get inside a song
and make it sing in ways it never has before.
Before his first CD release in 1996 ("Out Of The Blue",
SNL Records), Carl's recordings were as a sideman for the
bands of Stan Kenton, Bill Holman, Bob Florence, and others.
This site is dedicated to the growing number of recordings
with Carl as a leader. Inside you will find information on
all of Carl's current recordings, including sound clips and
information on how to purchase them.
CarlSaunders.com is also your source for current information
about Carl's upcoming appearances and projects. You can also
ask Carl questions, if you like--or just read what he had
to say about questions from others.
Carl Saunders is finally beginning to receive the recognition
and exposure he deserves. For that we thank all of his fans--for
supporting the music and for spreading the word. Welcome
