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.
In this exciting, tuneful, and energetic concert, Kevin takes you on a tour of his career highlights, from his Broadway debut to his years as Dr. Craig Wesley on Days of Our Lives – and he brings down the house time and again, whether crooning his way through a beautiful ballad or dancing and singing from a plethora of classic Broadway shows like_ A Chorus Line,_ Phantom Of The Opera, West Side Story, Camelot, Chicago, The Boy From Oz, and many others.
