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.

The creator of The Andrews Brothers and The Marvelous Wonderettes now brings audiences all the groovy music of the late 1960s as we follow Holly, a runaway bride to the Haight-Ashbury, where she learns to make her own kind of music! Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair; it’s gonna be a real trip!
