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. A naturally gifted performer whose body of work spans rock 'n' roll, R&B, pop, and jazz, he has helped define the saxophone's modern sound while influencing a generation.



Born in 1945 in Tampa, Florida, Sanborn contracted polio when he was only three years old. As a part of his rehabilitation therapy, he was introduced to the saxophone an introduction with consequences beyond the imagination of his parents, doctors, or anyone else. "When I was 17 or 18," Sanborn has said, "and it was time to figure out what to do with my life, I realized that I didn't enjoy anything as much as I enjoyed playing music. I felt that I had no choice, that I HAD to become a musician. Either that or steal cars."

Sanborn studied music for a year at Northwestern University before transferring to the University of Iowa. By 20, he was married and the proud father of a son named Jonathan, to whom each of Sanborn's records have been dedicated. The early years of his career saw him take the stage at Woodstock with the Butterfield Blues Band and tour with legends like Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, and David Bowie.



In 1975, Sanborn released his first solo album, Taking Off. While he continued working with other performers like Paul Simon and James Taylor in the coming years, he also began flexing his considerable muscles as a solo artist, eventually scoring massive popular hits with Hideaway (1980), the Grammy-winning 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 '80s 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.
