When I first heard about David Sanborn I was amazed how much tone could come out of a sax! David Sanborn has amzaing feel for every song style and plays every note like it's his last. Here is more on Saxophone Legend David Sanborn,
David Sanborn has been a highly regarded session player since the late 1960s, playing with an array of well-known artists, such as James Brown, Bryan Ferry, Eric Clapton, Roger Daltrey, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Jaco Pastorius, the Brecker Brothers, Casiopea, Players Association, David Bowie, Todd Rundgren, Bruce Springsteen, Little Feat, Tommy Bolin, Bob James, James Taylor, Al Jarreau, Pure Prairie League, Kenny G George Benson, Joe Beck, Donny Hathaway, Elton John, Gil Evans, Carly Simon, Guru, Linda Ronstadt, Billy Joel, Kenny Garrett, Roger Waters, Steely Dan, Ween, The Eagles, The Grateful Dead, the German group Nena, and Japanese pop star Utada Hikaru.
Sanborn has won numerous awards including Grammy Awards for Voyeur (1982), Double Vision (1986) and the instrumental album Close Up (1988). In television, Sanborn is well-known for his sax solo in the theme song for the NBC hit drama L.A. Law. He has also done some film scoring for films such as Lethal Weapon and Scrooged. In 1991 Sanborn recorded Another Hand, which the All Music Guide to Jazz described as a "return by Sanborn to his real, true love: unadorned (or only partly adorned) jazz" that "balanced the scales" against his smooth jazz material. The album, produced by Hal Willner, featured musicians from outside the smooth jazz scene, such as Charlie Haden, Jack DeJohnette, Bill Frisell, and Marc Ribot. His more recent albums include Closer.
In 1994 Sanborn appeared in A Celebration: The Music of Pete Townshend and The Who, also known as Daltrey Sings Townshend. This was a two-night concert at Carnegie Hall produced by Roger Daltrey of English rock band The Who in celebration of his fiftieth birthday. In 1994 a CD and a VHS video were issued, and in 1998 a DVD was released.
In 2004, Sanborn was inducted into the St. Louis Walk of Fame. In 2006, he was featured in Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band's most recent album The Phat Pack (released on June 13) on the track "Play That Funky Music", a remake of the Wild Cherry' hit in a big band style. Sanborn often performs at Japan's Blue Note venues in Nagoya, Osaka, and Tokyo. He plays on the song "Your Party" on Ween's 2007 release La Cucaracha. On April 8 2007, Sanborn sat in with the Allman Brothers Band during their annual run at the Beacon Theater in New York City.

1980s, McLaughlin experienced his first slice of mainstream country music success: Steve Wariner recorded Pat's "Lynda." Wariner's version climbed to the top of the charts, winning Pat his first BMI Country Award in 1988. In 1992, Tanya Tucker and Delbert McClinton had a hit with McLaughlin's "Tell Me About It" - another BMI award coupled with a mainstream asterisk for the reluctant Nashville songwriter.
2000's Uncle Pat showcased more of the adept guitarist's blithe compositions. Next Five Miles followed suit, setting critic tongues wagging. Co-produced by McLaughlin and guitar wunderkind Kenny Greenberg, Next Five Miles drew rave reviews from hipsters across the country, including the Chicago Sun-Times, who listed the album among its top roots projects of the year.
Pat's songs have been recorded by…
Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal,Steve Wariner, Roger Cook,Continental Drifters,Subdudes,Sean Keene Duke Merrick,Tanya Tucker,Tricia Yearwood,Nashville Jug Band,Joy Lynn White,Ricky Van Shelton,John Prine,Delbert McClinton,Maura O’Connell,Tim O’Brien,Brian Langlinias,Don Williams,Nanci Griffith,Alan Jackson,Gary Allen,Lee Ann Womack,Katy Moffatt,Blackhawk,Les Taylor,Al Kooper,Ashley Cleveland,Shawn Camp,Josh Turner,Jamie Hartford,Mountain Heart,Jack Ingram,Jimmy Stewart,Steve Runkle,Mandy Barnett,Craig Carter.
