Typically within a couple of notes, music enthusiasts can identify the bluesy signature squawk, and tone of St. Louis native David Sanborn. The illustrious career of this six-time Grammy winner sits humbly at the number two position next to Grover Washington Jr. as the second most influential saxophonists in modern music for more then thirty years.
An inimitable beacon in the music world Sanborn resurfaces and armed with passion after a three-year hiatus from recording. On this outing, he brings us more than a half glass of distinctive blues, which could be considered one of the most highly acclaimed projects of his career. Yes, I’ll say this record qualifies as a dapper jewel enmesh with satisfying plate of soulful music on the Decca U.S. titled “Here and Gone,” produced by the legendary Phil Ramone.
