The concert has finished
There are the well-known musicians, and then there are icons. Alto saxophonist David Sanborn is an icon. He could be glimpsed in the background of the Woodstock movie when he played with Paul Butterfield Blues Band, he contributes to several of Gil Evans' groundbreaking LPs, he was with the Brecker Brothers Band and has gilded many world hits with his crisp and feisty alto sax. David Sanborn has, alongside his career as a sought-after side-kick, led one of the most successful fusion jazz ensembles, since the eighties, and it is in that role he enters the stage at Sølyst. Full-fat funk/jazz from the very top shelf.
