Bounce-Worthy: Saunders Sermons

Miami native Saunders Sermons first love may have been singing, but it quickly encompassed Jazz as well when he picked up the trombone at the tender age of 11. Currently touring with Maxwell, Saunders' MySpace page proudly boasts "I worked with all my top friends. Have you?" He's not one to rest on his laurels, obviously, but his bragging and boasting is justified. He can name Jill Scott, Diddy, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, and countless others as his past collaborators. So you're not still impressed? Then I'll say this: despite our varied musical tastes, every last one of SoulBounce's editors and extended family have been loving this like cooked food. And since copping his latest album Classic Delight, I have been listening to the two songs below daily at least three times each. Get yourself better acquainted with Saunders and you'll be doubly rewarded.
