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.

I first heard David when he was a member of The Butterfield Blues Band. I liked his sound on those records. Through the years he has both annoyed the hell out of me and then other times simply provided a joyful and soulful turn.
So there.
