Here & Gone
Label: Decca Crossover
With Here & Gone, David Sanborn leaves modern instrumental pop behind to pay loving tribute to his main influence, the legendary soul-jazz saxophonist Hank Crawford. Sanborn and his band (which includes the rhythm section of Christian McBride and Steve Gadd) sizzle through songs associated with Crawford, his boss Ray Charles and his saxophone associate "Fathead" Newman. Sam Moore, Joss Stone and a truly simpatico Eric Clapton lend vocal support, but this is Sanborn's show. Play "St. Louis Blues," "Please Send Me Someone to Love" and "Basin Street Blues" (loaded with musical quotes) now.
