Cool performance by Bob James, David Sanborn & Steve Gadd – Leverkusener Jazztage (2013). Oh god they sound amazing! These guys have made beautiful music through the years and still at it. Great bass player Scott Colley, let’s not forget!(more…)
Great concert of David Sanborn – Newport Jazz Festival (1998).
His screeching personalized sound-voice notwithstanding , Sanborn demonstrates some true Jazz chops (although not to the level of jazz-purity as, let’s say, Michael Breaker (tenor sax) or altoists Kenny Garett , Vincent Herring, Donald Harrison, Jessie Davis…I guess he is perhaps the best Blues saxophonist out there. He’s got many Grammies for his ceaseless ‘sax’phonetics’, so to speak.
