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.

It was also in 1975 that Sanborn released his first solo album, Taking Off. While Sanborn continued working with other performers such as Paul Simon and James Taylor in the coming years, he also continued flexing his considerable muscles as a solo artist, eventually scoring massive popular hits with Hideaway (1980), the Grammy-winning album Voyeur(1981), and Backstreet (1983), the last of which proved to be a major hit in the world of contemporary jazz. He won his second of six career Grammy Awards in 1986 for Double Vision (with Bob James), and in the late 1980s he hosted the classic television program Night Music.

Throughout the ’90s, ’00s, and into the present, Sanborn has continued to tour and record, having amassed a wide and enthusiastic fan base around the world. Recent albums like Dreaming Girl (2008), Here & Gone (2008), and Only Everything (2010) reflect the essence of an artist at peace with his own sound and development, yet still hungry – eager to explore the possibilities of his instrument and his abilities.
