David Sanborn

David Sanborn has been the most influential saxophonist on pop, R&B, and crossover players of the past 20 years. Most of his recordings have been in the dance music/R&B vein, although Sanborn is a capable jazz player. His greatest contributions to music have been his passionate sound (with its crying and squealing high notes) and his emotional interpretations of melodies which generally uplift any record he is on. Unlike his countless number of imitators, Sanborn 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 (he played with the Butterfield Blues Band at Woodstock), Gil Evans, Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, and the Brecker Brothers, Sanborn began recording as a leader in the mid-'70s and he racked up a string of pop successes. Over the years he has worked with many pop players but he has made his biggest impact leading his own danceable bands. Occasionally Sanborn throws the music world a curve: his eccentric but rewarding Another Hand, a guest stint with avant-gardist Tim Berne on a 1993 album featuring the compositions of Julius Hemphill, and a set of ballads (Pearls) on which he is accompanied by a string orchestra arranged by Johnny Mandel. For a couple years 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 and heavy metal players), most of whom were given the unique opportunity to play together. It displayed David Sanborn's wide interest and musical curiosity even if many of his own recordings remain quite predictable. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day ofyour life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary. Put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters. This is scary cause it really works
He know's how to move u from stomping your feet to moving every part of your body!'nnn

A genre unto himself. Unmistakable and always rewarding.
plays a very unmistake able sax
"Spooky," how freakin' AWESOME David Sanborn is!! Supercool Dude!
This Yanow guy is no good! He writes a nasty bio about any excellent musician--he is on some jealous trip, slashing anybody who has great talent. One victim was Lee Ritenour, but many fans rebeled against his criticism, expressing their disapproval against him. So, Pandora listened to the fans and decided to take Yanow out; now, Ritenour has a much nicer and more accurate bio written by another biographer. :-)
Very envious of all of you that have had the great opportunity to see him in person/conce r t / v e n u e . W i s h i'd of had the chance.Keep on playin' the way you do,David.... w a y COOOOOOOOL.. . .
Not to mention he was in the original Saturday Night Live band with Paul Shafer and Howard Shore. The new guys try to sound like him, but struggle. Every time I play his records my friends say that sounds like the Saturday Night Live show. Didn't know he was at Woodstock! I'm a huge fan.
Big fan here of David Sanborn. When I used to teach aerobics I used a lot of his music.

Sandborn is an amazing saxophonist. He is anything but predictable
Predictable? Pandora must have a room full of monkeys writing these bios. Sanborn is anything but that......
