    DAVID SANBORN PASSING - May 12, 2024

Born: July 30, 1945, Tampa, FL
Died: May 12, 2024 (age 78 years), Tarrytown, NY 

It is with sad and heavy hearts that we convey to you the loss of internationally renowned, 6 time Grammy Award-winning, saxophonist, David Sanborn. Mr. Sanborn passed Sunday afternoon, May 12th, after an extended battle with prostate cancer with complications. Mr. Sanborn had been dealing with prostate cancer since 2018, but had been able to maintain his normal schedule of concerts until just recently. He already had concerts scheduled into 2025. David Sanborn was a seminal figure in contemporary pop and jazz music. It has been said that he "put the saxophone back into Rock 'n Roll.
There were many posts on Instagram/Facebook and with a heavy heart I, this website owner, played the first music I acquired of his in 1986 Double Vision with Bob James. It was on a cassette tape. His music will live on in so many sax players he influenced. On Sunday, May 12th Michael Lington, on his Stageit show, played Goodbye a song David Sanborn did. It now seems so surreal.
