Saxophonist David Sanborn Interviewed at AAJ

Saxophonist David Sanborn is one of the most recognizable instrumentalists in modern music. From his many television appearances--on his own show, Night Moves, and with David Letterman's band--to his popular records and tours, Sanborn is among the few names in jazz that non-jazzheads can recognize.

In 2008, Sanborn released Here & Gone (Decca, 2008), an album that pays tribute to saxophonist {{Hank Crawford = 5970}}, who was a key part of the {{Ray Charles = 5648}} band through many of its greatest years. Crawford inspired Sanborn to play the saxophone, and it's fitting that Sanborn is now using his notoriety to shed a little light on an under-appreciated jazz master.

AAJ Contributor and host of the popular The Jazz Session series of podcasts, spoke with Sanborn about the making of Here & Gone and pushing oneself to new places after decades on the bandstand
