SPECIAL: Tonight on the Night Train, we pay tribute to David Sanborn, who passed away Sunday at the age of 78. The Grammy-winning alto saxophonist was a much in demand session player who worked with a who’s who of rock, pop, blues and jazz artists in a career that spanned over five and half decades. Night Train will highlight the jazz side of his work, with music from his albums as a leader, along with guest appearances he made with the Butterfield Blues Band (among his first appearances on record), John Scofield, Steve Khan, Eddie Palmieri, and more.
