David Sanborn .:|:. Hearsay -[Elektra/WEA Records, 1994]
The incomparable, distinctive and influential sax legend David Sanborn has pretty much stayed the course during his early years playing it safe with radio friendly hook filled pop-rock-funk instrumental songs. Meanwhile, he obviously felt a need to switch gears again as he incorporated what seemed an abrasive funky-side of his songbook anchored to his St. Louis roots. Once again, he seemed not satisfied with his position and transcend into a new direction musically by answering his critics dabbling into a contrasting style to readjust his sound on Another Hand which scared the heck out of his fan-base.
