Tony Saunders – Uptown Jazz

Tony Saunders’ musical journey has continued on through today. He has played and recorded with an astounding list of great musical talents, including Eric Clapton, David Crosby, Joe Sample, Chaka Khan, Ringo Starr, Bo Diddley, The Hawkins Family, and many others. “This just touches the edge of who I have been blessed to play with,” says Saunders. Tony has played on hundreds of albums, won two Emmy Awards for soundtracks, written award winning movie scores and commercial jingles. Tony continues to record his own projects and produces for an impressive list of talent at his state of the art Northern California studio.

Uptown Jazz is the third solo release from bass virtuoso, composer and producer Tony Saunders on San Francisco Records. The album’s infectious melodies and upbeat vibe firmly establish Saunders as a member of the Smooth Jazz hit-making fraternity. Uptown Jazz features exciting performances from Gerald Albright on sax, Gabriel Mark Hasselbach on trumpet and flute, Mic Gillette and Tom Politzer of Tower of Power, as well as Rock Hendricks, Paul Hardcastle Jr. and Sakai. Smooth, romantic and one you don’t want to miss.
