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.

Nick DeGruccio (recently awarded “Best Director” honors by the LA Drama Critic’s Circle for Zanna, Don’t!) will direct The Andrews Brothers, with choreography by Roger Castellano and musical direction by John Glaudini. Roger Bean, creator of The Andrews Brothers, will be in residence, overseeing the production. Stan Chandler, David Engel and Larry Raben, all original cast members of the hit Broadway show Forever Plaid, will star as the three hapless G.I.s, with Darcie Roberts (Broadway’s Curtains and Millie in the National Tour of Thoroughly Modern Millie) rounding out this all-star cast.
