David Sanborn

  • How Allmusic.com’s Scott Yanow describes David Sanborn: “the most influential saxophonist on pop, R&B, and crossover players of the past 20 years.”
  • Although he’s a smooth player and a jazzy player: don’t call his music smooth jazz—it’s more a fusion of jazz, funk, soul, blues, pop, and rock
  • His track record: 6 Grammy Awards and 24 albums, 8 of which were certified gold and 1 that went platinum
  • Why he first started playing the sax: polio
  • Really?: Yep, Sanborn had polio at the age of three, and took up the sax upon doctor’s advice to strengthen his weakened chest muscles and improve his breathing
  • How he got his start in the industry: he played with blues greats such as Albert King and Little Milton when he was only 14, which led to his career as a sought-after session player
  • That awesome sax solo that kicks off David Bowie’s “Young Americans”: pure Sanborn
  • The theme to L.A. Law: pure Sanborn again
  • A few more artists he has collaborated with: The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Elton John, Billy Joel, and The Eagles
  • So basically: if there was a sax solo in a hit song in the past few decades, there’s a good chance it was played by David Sanborn

Dave Koz

  • Who is Dave Koz?: one of the most revered stars of the smooth-jazz genre, and a king of the pop saxophone
  • Where you first became keen to his funky tones: when he toured in the late ’80s with Richard Marx or blew his horn on The Arsenio Hall Show
  • Decades later: he’s a platinum-selling adult-contemporary star with nine Grammy nominations, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, his own radio program, and a government-issued “License to Solo”
  • Other artists who’ve enlisted his talents: Ray Charles, Natalie Cole, Celine Dion, U2, Rod Stewart, Luther Vandross, and Stevie Wonder
  • What he brings to the show: his gracious, and often show-stopping, alto-saxing
