David Sanborn

David Sanborn

David Sanborn headlining on the main stage at the 25th Mt. Hood Festival of Jazz.

He and his band are more powerful than ever.

Brian Flowers on keyboard was marvelous and drummer Gene Lake was a phenomenon. Nicky Moroch on guitar. They flowed like liquid together taking us all along on a rich journey.

During his breaks he was generous in thanking the jazz community in this area for their support. He was also quite funny. He was telling us a story when he stopped and said he couldn't remember something. "I have the memory of a goldfish", he said. "That's not necessarily a bad thing", he continued. "Trips around the bowl aren't so bad- oh look a new diver, hey look that air tank is new".

He calls New York City home.
