Double Bill: David Sanborn Band plus John Scofield and Jon Cleary

Sage One

Pre-concert talk at 6.30pm with David Sanborn (free to ticket holders)

David Sanborn has been described as one the most influential saxophonist on pop, R&B, and crossover players of the past 20 years.

Sanborn’s soulful saxophone has been one of the signature sounds in contemporary jazz for some four decades, in a career that’s travelled from James Brown and David Bowie to Jaco Pastorius and Gil Evans, as well as a string of landmark recordings of his own.

Following 2013’s sold out Barbican show he returns to the fiercely grooving electric fusion that defined his blistering live performances through the 80s and 90s, with a brand new jazz-meets R&B album Time and the River (released 7 April 2015).

The duo of jazz guitar hero John Scofield and vocalist/pianist Jon Cleary (Brit-born, but steeped in the deep traditions of New Orleans) takes its cue from Scofield’s Piety Street recording from 2009; a heady mix of blues and gospel flavours inspired by the deep South.
