Renowned and revered the world over as one of the greatest saxophone players of all-time, David Sanborn is an artist whose music has inspired countless other musicians while creating a body of work that spans the genres of rock 'n' roll, R&B, pop and jazz. A naturally gifted performer, Sanborn has helped define the saxophone's modern sound while influencing a generation.
Few saxophonists in jazz are as immediately recognizable as David Sanborn, thanks in large part to his contributions to hits by David Bowie, James Taylor, Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan and dozens more. Sanborn's roots are in the bluesy end of jazz, particularly in the music of Ray Charles's band - saxophonist Hank Crawford is a seminal influence - and in organ combos. That's the sound his latest album, Only Everything, evoked through a trio featuring Sanborn on alto, Joey DeFrancesco on organ and Steve Gadd on drums.
