4.0 out of 5 stars One of David's best solo albums., 23 May 2001
By 
Amazon Customer (Devon, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Straight To The Heart (Audio CD)
David Sanborn is without a doubt one of the most imitated Sax players of the last thirty years. Ever since his days with the Paul Butterfield band, Sanborn has been among the session elite working with many of popular music's greatest names, i.e. Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, David Bowie. Whilst recording with such legendary figures, Sanborn has recorded several hugely popular solo albums. This album is no exception. "Straight to the heart" is still regarded by many as one of Sanborn's best. Not only is the leader on top form, but he finds himself in good company. Marcus Miller contributes some great bass lines and solos, Hamish Stuart (formerly of the AWB) sings a great version of the Al Green classic "Love and Happiness", whilst there are fine touches by guitarist Hiram Bullock.
This is a live album, which means Sanborn gets more of a chance to stretch out than on many of his other, more clinical studio albums. The result is a beautifully conceived and more relaxed session.
Definitely worth checking out. Hope you agree.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elegance and groove, 5 July 2011
This review is from: Straight To The Heart (Audio CD)
I chanced upon this still as a Vinyl in my local record shop when I was a teenager and still can't stop listen to the cool quirkiness of some of the licks and riffs on this recordings. The playing is excellent, elegant and always with the ultimate groove. The sound / mix is just matching the playing in excellence. Highly professional - and if anything - understated production. Great record, - thanks David and co ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars A fusion classic..., 15 Aug. 2001
This review is from: Straight To The Heart (Audio CD)
Absolute fusion classic. I've had it since the 80's and still listen to it. One of my top 5 albums of all time. "Run for Cover" is just awesome. All players are on top form on this track...
