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.

“Lovingly and precisely recaptures the sound in a irrepressible, irresistible style. They deserve a national medal for preserving this music with such affection and accuracy.” –San Francisco Chronicle
The Long Beach Community Concert Association closes out their season with a swinging finale featuring an audience favorite: the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra. Drawing inspiration from the great music of the “Jazz Age” and “Swing Era,” the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra affectionately recaptures the excitement and fascination of that musical heyday.
