Carlton Saunders first release “LEVIATHAN” has a colossal title for two reasons: One; like the huge blue whale the CD is mammoth, a compilation of the best songs Carlton recorded after many years in the music business. And two; Carlton and his audience did not want the compositions to become “endangered” of extinction like the magnificent sea creatures.
The 11 original songs on the digital release span the best material from Carlton’s bands to his most innovative studio creations.
As a special treat for Carlton’s fans the souvenir “LEVIATHAN” CD also includes 5 exclusive solo piano pieces. These well loved classic cover songs are:
Louisiana / Booker’s Notion / Edelweiss / New Orleans Piano, and a powerful rendition of The Pink Panther Theme.
Global Cool / piano version, LEVIATHAN, Scotch Street, Take My Hand, Send Me A Letter, Gulbransen, Global Cool / studio version, Insect Jazz, Bretton Woods, Fool’s Gold, Take My Hand / unplugged and Leviathan Lament.
“LEVIATHAN” – Produced and mastered by David Simmons and Eric Dalton.
