About This Act :

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, David has helped define the saxophone’s modern sound while influencing a generation. In 1975 tDavid released his first solo album Taking Off. The record enjoyed respectable sales and while he continued working with other performers such as Paul Simon and James Taylor he also flexed his considerable muscles as a solo artist, eventually scoring massive popular hits with 1980’s Hideaway and 1981’s Grammy winning Voyeur. 1983 saw David branch off in a new artistic direction with his first acting roll in the Italian film \"Stelle Sulla Citta\" for which he also scored the soundtrack. Also in ’83 he released his landmark Backstreet album, which proved a major hit in the world of contemporary jazz. David was awarded his second Grammy in 1986 for the album Double Vision and in the late 1980s hosted one of the most remarkable musical television programs of all time – Night Music. Offering up old films of jazz legends, music talk and incredible jams by an increasingly eclectic roll call of musicians from different fields, Night Music is fondly remembered among music fans as a groundbreaking and genre-bursting show. Produced by Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, Night Music brought artists as diverse as Sonny Rollins, Leonard Cohen, Hank Crawford, Conway Twitty, Sonic Youth, Al Green and the Pixies together on one program.
