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.

Nice venue. Easy free parking and all seats are good. Linda Purl has a wonderful personality, and uses it to full effect with her patter and anecdotal material, which makes her show flow so well. Her vocal talent was a delightful surprise. Her choice of material really worked for me, and she shows a wide range of styles. Her accompanist ( who sang a charming duet with her) was sensational.
