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.

I've been wanting to attend a Pilobolus performance ever since I learned about the group on 60 Minutes many ages ago. The performance was excellent and I was amazed at the strength of the performers and the fluidity of it all. I would definitely make a point to watch another Pilobolus performance next year. However, I would not recommend watching any performance at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center. This was my first visit to the center and my last. A lot of the patrons were obviously CSULB students who were attending the performance because they had to as opposed to because they wanted to. There were a handful of them on their phones during the performance posting things on Twitter and Facebook---you couldn't help but notice the bright light in the midst of the darkness. Also, the ushers were not very helpful and the individuals manning the ticket window and will call booth were not friendly at all.
