At Blue Note Jazz Club (Late Night Groove Series) – Show Saturday Night at 12:30AM (Doors at Midnight)
Saunders Sermons is an American soul, jazz singer, song writer, and trombonist. Born and raised in Miami, FL, Sermons began playing the trombone at the age of 11. He honed his jazz skills at The New School in New York City, and since graduating, he has grown to become an established independent artist with an admirable music career.
As a trombonist, Sermons’s brassy sounds can be heard on Jay Z’s single “Roc Boys” and Fantasia’s single “Two Weeks Notice.” He has performed and/or toured with hip hop and R&B heavy weights such as 50 Cent, Diddy, Snoop Dogg, and Mary J. Blige. Sermons has also performed with jazz trumpet player Roy Hargrove and R&B jazz saxophonist Mike Phillips.
Fusing jazz with pop, R&B, and hip hop is Sermons’s own unique blend of artistry. “I want to bring elegance back to music and set a new standard for the industry like the greats, Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr., John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Louis Armstrong,” he says. His debut album, Classic Delight, came out in 2009 and features Sermons collaborating with R&B giant Maxwell.« Back to Events
