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.

Creative, cutting edge dance in a great, easy to access venue. Very hip crowd, sold out and standing ovation. Even my non-modern loving spouse loved it and my 13 year old enjoyed it (although it was a tad abstract for her, but that comes with the territory). Had just seen classical R&J ballet in OC last week so timing was perfect.

I love ballet, and I love Radiohead. This show combines the two into brilliant perfection. As a dancer myself, I cannot imagine this music being more precisely made visual by the choreography, and the company was quite flawless in the execution....continued

Enter the world of razor-sharp dancing, video effects, electronic rhythms, and beautiful melodies with Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, set to the music of Radiohead and choreography of Edward Clug. In a rare U.S. engagement, this powerfully gorgeous contemporary ballet from Eastern Europe gives new twist to this timeless tale of conflict, fate, and love. The rhythmic power of Radiohead’s dynamic compositions propels the dancers to new emotional heights in this West Coast premiere.
