Now's the Time: David Sanborn
That sound! Love it or loathe it, there's no denying that the tone of David Sanborn's saxophone has had an enormous impact on modern popular music. The 63-year-old's new album is being marketed as a tribute to David "Fathead" Newman, Hank Crawford and other epochal jazz and R&B saxophonists. Sanborn will undoubtedly emphasize that material when he performs Tuesday at the Uptown Theater.
