Coming from a musical family… his mother was a big band singer and his two uncles were trumpeter, Bobby Sherwood and octet leader, Dave Pell…as a teenager, Saunders joined the Stan Kenton Band and today is lead trumpet with the Bill Holman Band. He has also worked with John Williams and the big bands of Gerald Wilson and Bob Florence as well as leader of his own big band.
