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.

Very different - great combination of athletics and clever sets
Some good humor and dramatic visuals
I would recomend they also add lights and or dayglow to some of the activities and perform in the dark - would have been very dramatic!
Thrill to the impact of extreme sports combined with the poetry and split-second timing of dance. Exploding with the suspense and energy of near-misses and imminent crashes, action-architect Elizabeth Streb’s daring performers explore the boundaries of force, gravity, action and reaction. Whether flying, falling, or seemingly suspended in mid-air, Streb brings the audience ringside for a match-up of human pitted against the phenomenal forces of everyday physical action—creating a new aesthetic of grace and danger.
