I was lucky enough to win tickets to the David Sanborn concert at The Stiefel Theatre, courtesy of B98's Sunday Jazz Brunch program. Wow, what a show!
The show started out with Sanborn playing Comin' Home Baby, then Brother Ray and by the time he got to Maputo, which was three songs in, I was completely lost in the music. There is nothing like a jazz tune played on a saxophone. Everything he played was a hit that I'd heard on the radio at one time or another. It's really to bad that B98 doesn't mainstream their jazz station like they did back in the late 90's.
Sanborn was in fine form on Valentine's night. He brought his incredible back-up band with him so the audience at The Stiefel got way more than they bargained for. It was a magical night with superb jazz saxophone played by David Sanborn.
