Over an astounding career that began as a blues sideman at age14 then evolving into one of the most in-demand and imitated musicians across genres, saxophonist David Sanborn is a living legend. Distinguished by a biting, ear-bending tone and a penchant for soulfully explosive runs, Sanborn’s sound has graced great recordings by artists that include David Bowie, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Donny Hathaway, Chaka Khan, The Temptations, Jaco Pastorius, Kenny Loggins, Todd Rundgren, Esther Phillips and Bob James. As an artist, Sanborn earned 8 gold records, a platinum-seller, won six Grammys, and topped international critics and readers polls.

  • On July 30, David Sanborn turns 75-years-old while 2020 additionally marks the 45th anniversary of his debut LP as a leader. In honor of these milestones, SoulMusic Records proudly presents this 3-disc “audio travelogue” that covers the arc of his artistry like no other. “David Sanborn - Anything You Want: The Warner-Reprise-Elektra Years (1975-1999)” salutes Sanborn by taking a deep dive into the 17 albums he recorded as a solo artist within the highly impressionable 25-year period he was earning a reputation for world alto saxophone dominance. From Taking Off (Warner - 1975) to Close-Up (Reprise - 1988) through Inside (Elektra - 1999).
  • Produced by Los Angeles-based musicologist A. Scott Galloway with co-production by founder David Nathan, this deluxe package explores David Sanborn’s catalogue in an artful approach - an immersive 45-song experience, filled with cherry-picked radio edits, rare mixes, live versions and overlooked album cut gems that present Sanborn at his eclectic, emotive finest. Each of the three discs covers a specific aspect of Sanborn’s vibe, offering a variety of palate-pleasing styles that plays out like three 15-song feasts in one.
  • Disc 1, New York Dave & The Cali-Crossover Express, primarily explores the Florida-native’s early experimental years. This disc moves from the thrilling opener ‘Flight’ (Dave dueling with strings over a hotbed of percussion) into anomalies such as the only song he ever sang lead on, his first solo compositions, a co-write with Michael McDonald and a song arranged by mentor Gil Evans to hits such as Michael Sembello’s ‘The Dream’, ‘Lesley Anne’, ‘As We Speak’, Leon Russell, James Taylor, Paul Simon and Carly Simon covers, and an orchestral rendition of the folk song ‘The Water is Wide’ featuring Linda Ronstadt.
  • Disc 2, Sanborn: Soul Man showcases David at his soulful, funky best on jams such as ‘Chicago Song’, ‘Snakes’, ‘I Told U So’, a slammin’ live cover of Al Green’s
