Jazz composer/cornetist Court Mast - Sausalito Summer

Sausalito Summer, the CD released in August, 2008 by Sausalito jazz composer and cornetist Court Mast is, as one might suppose, a musical love letter to that colorful, cozy, delightful town snuggled onto the shore of San Francisco Bay just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. And like the town itself, Sausalito Summer is in turns soothing, funky and festive, with a steady stream of sea breeze to clear the mind. The recording is a lyrical, spirited delight, built for comfort but laced, as well, with stirring moments and happy musical surprises.

It was a pleasure listening to your CD. You are an excellent trumpet player, composer and arranger. I especially enjoyed the sequencing of the compositions. It really brought dynamics and flow to the CD. Obviously you've spent a lot of time perfecting your craft. I wish you all the best, and I'm looking forward to hearing your next project. Sincerely, Eddie Henderson -- Eddie Henderson, jazz trumpeter

Influenced by Henry Mancini, Chuck Mangione and Steely Dan, the [Sausalito Summer] sparkles with waterfront-inspired tracks like “Water Street,” “Jib Jive,” “Gold Coast,” “Sailing Home” and “West Wind”..
