I grew up loving bands like Chicago and Blood Sweat and Tears. When I moved from Winter Park to Tallahassee, Florida for Grad School, a life long love of jazz began. My room mate and I discovered that much of the music we liked, Steely Dan, for instance, had jazz studio musicians on the albums.
One of the sax men I found out about this way is David Sanborn, one of the greats. Stricken with polio at age 3 in 1945, part of his therapy was to play music. He chose the sax, and the rest is jazz music history.
Take a break and watch this video of a man who turned tragedy into triumph, and clearly loves what he does….ENJOY!
