What an album!

Just one problem with listening to it,you want more!

That really is the only small gripe is that this is a fairly short album with a 9 track listing.

David has gone for a far more 50s/60s even 70s blues approach on this his latest cut and that fine by me.

This sort of sound suits Sanborn's unique style of saxaphone mastery and no track ever feels surplus or rushed.

All through the years Sanborn's music evolves sweetly and to the pace that can only be right for this musician.

Certainly NOT a dissapointment in any way just different from David,s last few excellent albums.

Disappointed. It's just like an earlier album 'Another Hand' where it went too old-school jazzy for me. I like his more contemporary work. You might like this sort of thing but I wish I had seen a review like mine before I bought it.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Best David Sanborn yet. 13 Aug. 2008
By Jazzy Drummer18 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This a great unexpected release from David Sanborn. I usually tend to stay away from commercial jazz releases but here the guest artists (Clapton,Trucks,Stone,Moore) are stellar and give tasteful performances. Sanborn's playing is more bluesy than usual, and his tone is the classic sound as always. The backing band, especially bassist Christian McBride and Drummer Steve Gadd, are extremely tight which would be expected if you know these musicians. The quality stays consistent through the nine tracks, and with a shorter length the album doesn't overstay its welcome. If you usually find David Sanborn a little too sappy I urge you to give this recording a chance.

4.0 out of 5 stars His best in recent times? 2 Dec. 2008
By Olukayode Balogun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I know alto saxophonist David Sanborn has his critics. Put him on after listening to a Kenny Garret CD and it's easy to see why. He's not exactly hardcore.

But I like him. His music was part of my introduction to contemporary jazz (or jazz fusion as it was called back then), so many years ago and I've been a fan ever since. This album, produced by Phil Ramone and inspired by Hank Crawford, is a nice set of blues-influenced songs and with a big band line-up like the one he has here: Steve Gadd on drums; Christian McBride on bass; Russell Malone on drums; Gil Goldstein on Rhodes & Wurlitzer electric piano; Ricky Peterson on Hammond B3; Keyon Harrold, Lew Soloff & Wallace Roney on trumpet; Mike Davis on tenor trombone; Lou Marini on tenor sax; Howard Johnson on baritone sax and Charles Pillow & John Moses on bass clarinet, the music couldn't possibly be anything but good.

I balked when I learned that Joss Stone was on this album (I simply. Can. Not. Stand. The woman) but I thought, she's only on the one track after all and really, how bad could she possibly be?

As it turns out, the track she sings on, "I Believe To My Soul", isn't bad at all. In fact, I think it's quite good. But it's the song itself I like and not Joss Stone's performance on it, if that makes any sense. The producer thankfully kept her wannabee pretensions in check and she sounds just like any other competent singer - if I close my eyes and try my hardest to forget that it's her.

My favourite tracks on here include the dreamy album opener, "St. Louis Blues" (written by W.C. Handy); the Marcus Miller-penned "Brother Ray", featuring Derek Trucks on guitar; "I'm Gonna Move To The Outskirts Of Town" (Roy Jordan/William Weldon), featuring vocals (and guitar?) by Eric Clapton; "Basin Street Blues (Spencer Williams); the solemn "What Will I Tell My Heart" (Peter Tinturn/Jack Lawrence/Irving Gordon) and the obviously Ray Charles-influenced album closer, "I've Got News For You", written by Roy Alfred and featuring vocals by Sam Moore.

Have I heard better from David Sanborn? Most definitely. I'm still waiting for an album to top classics and personal favourites like 1982's As We Speak, 1984's Straight to the Heart, 1995's Pearls and 1996's Songs from the Night Before. But this is definitely up there. In my view, one of his best in recent times.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely slow jazz from a sax master 3 Sept. 2008
By R. Kyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love David Sanborn whether he's playing sweet and slow or hot and fast. This tribute CD's got some of jazz standards and heavy hitters from other genres as guests. It's 9 songs and about 2 minutes--could be a bit longer. Still it's a very listenable CD, maybe not Sanborn's best, but well worth having on the shelf.

My favorites:

I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town--featuring Eric Clapton
Basin Street Blues
I Believe it to my Soul--Joss Stone

Okay, it's all good, but these are my current faves. Give this one a listen.

2.0 out of 5 stars No interaction 11 Mar. 2009
By R. Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As a recording engineer for over 35 years, this disc leaves me flat. It is so obviously overdubbed (band played first, David and other guests added their part later) that there is no interaction with the rhythm section. Could any drummer actually be hearing Joss Stone and be so asleep at the wheel? In going for technical perfection all feeling has been put on the back burner. Any cut recorded live, from Ella to The Jazz Messengers, sounds like it's in your living room compared to this CD that sounds like it's in one of those germ free labs. Let's get back to the idea of a "band," musicians hearing each other and working together.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bringing It All Back Home 26 Nov. 2008
By Robert Putignano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
On this well thought out release, David Sanborn's soulful, roots-based, and grooving Decca debut, Here & Gone, the six-time Grammy winner becomes the fourth (known to me) artist (John Scofield's That's What I Say, Maceo Parker's Roots and Grooves, and Fathead Newman's I Remember Brother Ray) to pay homage to the genius, Ray Charles. Sanborn's approach to Brother Ray is not all that apparent and obvious, as he makes deeper connections to one of his own early influences, that being Hank Crawford, who was Charles' arranger and sax-player.

Some of my favorite tracks include: Marcus Miller's "Brother Ray," featuring Derek Trucks; Roy Jordan and William Weldon's "I'm Gonna Move To the Outskirts Of Town" with exceptional vocals from Clapton, where interestingly he does not get an abundance of time to solo, but it's all good just the same; Hank Crawford's "Stoney Lonesome"; Charles' "I Believe To My Soul" with strong vocals from Joss Stone, who sounds far better here than on her most recent recordings; and Ray Alfred's "I've Got News For You," where Sam Moore delivers the goods big time and sounds so much like Brother Ray (with his vocal inflections) that it's scary.

This is a great, unexpected, and most welcome release from Sanborn. The guest artists (Eric Clapton, Derek Trucks, Joss Stone, and Sam Moore) are all right-on and give tasty performances. Sanborn's playing is far more bluesy than usual and his tone is (as always) uniquely Sanborn. The core band consists of bassist Christian McBride, guitarist Russell Malone, keyboardist Gil Goldstein (who deserves huge kudos for providing the extremely sensitive and evocative arrangements), plus B3 player Ricky Peterson and the always wonderful Steve Gadd on drums. All are "A" team players who offer more than an appropriate backdrop, making the quality of this recording consistent throughout. Throw in guest horn appearances from top-shelf session players like Lew Soloff, Wallace Roney, "Blue Lou" Marini, and Howard Johnson and it's no wonder that this is a very solid recording. Producer Phil Ramone has also done a fine job at bringing out the best from each and every musician.

If you're like me and usually find David Sanborn's recent outings a little too smooth, I would suggest that you to give this recording ample listening, as it's the real deal and not a commercial throwaway. Clearly this disc is not like Sanborn's days with Butterfield (who he performed at Woodstock with), this is about Brother Ray and Hank Crawford, as Sanborn states in the liner notes: "Very special thanks to Hank Crawford for his inspiration," which says it all for me!
