Re: David Sanborn
I have been a big fan of Sanborn since the late 70s. One thing though, I have found a vast difference between his albums and his live concerts. His live stuff certainly makes the published stuff sound commercial, but then it is.
Perhaps this is the case with all major players, but don’t get around much. If I can take a girl to a concert when Sanborn comes to town, that’s usually pretty good. The concerts are great, and I like to be able to compare his phrasing, etc. in concert with the albums.
