On Saturday, May 3rd, 2008 at 7PM & 9:30PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (also known as “IMAC”) in Huntington, Long Island will present an evening with jazz saxophonist David Sanborn.
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, R&B, pop and jazz. A naturally gifted performer, David has helped define the saxophone’s modern sound while influencing a generation.
His resume, alone, makes him a living legend. He as performed with great artist like the Butterfield Blues Band (at Woodstock), Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie (famous solo on Bowie’s 1975 recording “Young Americans”), Paul Simon, James Taylor, Jaco Pastorius, Billy Joel. He was even a regular guest in the David Letterman Show band.
His solo work is equally impressive. Sanborn has won numerous awards for his solo works, including his albums Voyeur, Hideaway, Backstreet, and the instrumental single Close Up. David Sanborn is both musician and artist- that rare breed of popular recording star as eager today as in his youth to continue pushing boundaries and creating music that challenges the mind as it rewards the heart and soul.
