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.
Clarinet prodigy Dave Bennett leads his All-Star Septet through Benny Goodman’s big hits and swing-era classics: “Moonglow,” “I’ve Got Rhythm,” “Body and Soul,” “Slipped Disc,” “Sing, Sing, Sing,” and many others. Bennett brings new life to the music of the “King of Swing” with incredible technique, expression and sensitivity. Vocals made famous by such Goodman singers as Peggy Lee and Helen Forrest are “sung and swung” by jazz singer Anne Seabury. Couples who love to dance are encouraged to come in their best “swing-era” clothes and join the band on the dance floor! (Space is limited!)
