One of the best known saxophonists in the world, David Sanborn blends jazz, pop, rock and R&B into a smooth-as-silk sound that no other sax player has quite managed to copy. The career of this multiple Grammy winner was launched in 1975 by his (aptly-titled) debut album, Taking Off, and it hasn't come down since, spanning more than two dozen other albums. Established as both a soloist and a collaborator with the likes of Bowie, the Stones and Clapton, Sanborn now brings his "sweet-tart alto sound" (The New York Times) to Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beachfor an impassioned performance.
Howard Cowles is recognized as one of Southern California’s most popular and innovative pianists. Born in Orange, California to a classical pianist mother, his attachment to her Mason-Hamlin Grand Piano was obvious at a very early age. His youth was spent listening to and studying the classical masters. Music was a common sound in his adolescent years; he was influenced by all types of music from classical to rock, including Elton John, Barry Manilow, and Roger Williams.
Howard’s fist music teacher was his mother, Esther, a classical pianist and teacher herself. His current CD, “A Mother’s Garden,” was produced in her memory. Howard will be performing new songs off his new release “A Mother’s Garden,” as well as selections form his past albums. Howard will be joined by special guests throughout the night.
