One of the most commercially successful American saxophonists for six decades and counting, Sanborn is described by critic Scott Yannow as "the most influential saxophonist of pop, R&B, and crossover players of the past 20 years." Although a jazz musician at heart, Sanborn has transcended genres and musical boundaries throughout his entire career.
Having contracted polio at the age of three, Sanborn was introduced to the saxophone as part of his treatment therapy. By the age of 14, he was able to play with legends such as Albert King and Little Milton. Sanborn went on to study music at Northwestern University before transferring to the University of Iowa where he played and studied with the great saxophonist JR Monterose.
In his six decade (and counting) career, David Sanborn has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, and has had eight Gold albums and one Platinum album. He continues to be one of the most highly active musicians of his genre. As a whole, Sanborn is an artist who pushes the limits and continues to make music that challenges the mind and goes Straight to The Heart.
