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.

These musicians were a blast! Two different quirky personalities who played off of each other wonderfully. Their abilities as polished and expressive performers were constantly displayed -- and that they could have fun with it was icing on the cake. Great entertainment for people familiar with classical music. I'm sure that anyone who thinks classical music is not for them might have to rethink that after seeing them.
