Legendary saxophonist David Sanborn has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, has had eight Gold albums, one Platinum album and is considered one of the most influential saxophonists of our time. He is especially known for his passionate sound and emotional interpretations of melodies and unlike his countless number of imitators, is immediately recognizable within two notes. While growing up in St. Louis, Sanborn played with many Chicago blues greats (including Albert King) and became a skilled alto saxophonist despite battling polio in his youth. After important stints with Paul Butterfield, Gil Evans, Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, and the Brecker Brothers, Sanborn began recording as a leader in the mid-’70s and racked up a string of pop successes. In the early ’90s, Sanborn was the host of the syndicated television series “Night Music” which had a very eclectic lineup of musicians (from Sonny Rollins and Sun Ra to James Taylor). Additionally, he has regularly hosted the “After New Year’s Eve” TV special on ABC and hosted his own syndicated radio program, “The Jazz Show with David Sanborn.” He continues to be one of the most highly active musicians of his genre and is an artist who pushes the limits and continues to make music that challenges the mind and goes “Straight to The Heart.”
