A legendary sax player, David Sanborn has sold millions of records and performed with stellar artists including Roger Daltrey, Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, and Elton John.
With Here and Gone, David returns to his bluesy, R&B roots with special guests Eric Clapton, Joss Stone, Sam Moore (Sam and Dave) and Derek Trucks (Allman Brothers Band). This album moves away from the smooth jazz stylings of previous releases into broad soul/R&B territory, with mass appeal that is sure to connect with a wide, diverse audience of music lovers.
The album was produced by industry legend Phil Ramone who has worked with numerous stars including Burt Bacharach, Karen Carpenter and Ray Charles.

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.
Buy with confidence, great quality item. and great melodic overtones from this master of sax playing ...

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.
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.
Rebecca Kyle, August 2008
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!
