, releases August 28th through the Pacific Coast Jazz label. Six Degrees of Cool will be available for purchase on Amazon, iTunes, and CD Baby.

Drawing from renowned influences such as Cool Jazz giants Miles Davis, Chet Baker, and Anita O’Day, Sanborn’s new album brings Cool Jazz into today’s contemporary scene.

Sanborn says her latest release, Six Degrees of Cool, may remind you of the “West Coast Jazz” phenomenon of the ‘50s and ‘60s, complete with smooth, clear vocals and cool trumpet provided by Wayne Ricci

. But Sanborn’s new album is not your mother’s jazz music; Sanborn composes jazz for today’s listener, with fresh lyrics and melodies for the modern era.

Six Degrees of Cool has something for every jazz lover, even social commentary. Packing a punch on the nature of economic hard times are “Bitter Winter" and “Shanty Man," the last a song describing the effects on a family in the Great Depression of the 1930s.

The title track, “Six Degrees of Cool," is the one instrumental on the album, and features trumpeter Wayne Ricci.

Six Degrees of Cool is the follow-up album release to Sanborn’s critically acclaimed album, Blues for Breakfast. Released in 2011, Blues for Breakfast reached #4 on Amazon’s MP3 Vocal Jazz charts.
