removed orphaned whorehouse line[edit]

His first job was at a whorehouse.

Feel free to add it back in, in the proper location, or trivia section, or whatever...it should ideally be sourced. Tvccs 14:54, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Another Hand[edit]

Someone had written, "In 1991 Sanborn recorded an album, Another Hand, that… incorporated free jazz influences." I think it's inaccurate to describe this album as free jazz. (Perhaps "free" in the sense that he was free to try something different from usual.) I've replaced the statement with a cited quotation from the All Music Guide to Jazz. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 01:06, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Saturday Night Live[edit]

David Sanborn also was with the Saturday Night Live Band in the beginning of that show, and always played the "antler dance" (the song "Anything You Want" from his album Hideaway) at the end while Gilda Radner, the cast and guest host made antlers with their hands on their heads and danced and hopped around gleefully to the catchy tune while the end-of-show credits rolled. David, who played the melody line of that song, would frequently walk right out on the stage with his instrument while everyone danced around him. I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned it here, especially since that TV exposure is how a lot of us got to know him in the first place. (The Wikipedia article on Saturday Night Live actually does contain a reference to him.) See also the reference to Season 2, episode 1 at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072562/episodes, where host Lily Tomlin dances the Antler Dance with the SNL band at the end of the show.

discography is incomplete[edit]

The discography does not include his work with the Paul Butterfield blues band. This may have been only a couple of albums, I forget -- but few who enjoyed his "Last Hope's Gone" solo on the Pigboy Crabshaw album have forgotten it, I suspect.

Today on NPR, August 2, 2008[edit]

I'm not one to write articles (or add to them) here on Wiki (I'm not even sure how one goes about it, and I'm a bit lazy); but it would be great if someone could go to npr.org and listen to today's David Sanborn interview and write up some of its contents in this article. He talked about his childhood polio, subsequent paralysis, drug use/abuse and attempted suicide in the 60s, as well as his current battle with sequelae from the aforementioned polio (including a lack of motor control - even bowel incontinence, if I heard him correctly). Interesting interview. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.112.79.139 (talk) 14:28, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Bolding[edit]

Bolding is only to be used in extremely rare circumstances in biographies. each introductory word introducing what the article is about should be bolded, and there are a few more small but important circumstances. Other than them, don't ever bold titles of songs, albums, or awards. Thanks. Any questions, check the Manual of Style. --Leahtwosaints (talk) 00:04, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Moved commentary from article[edit]

I have moved the following comments from the article to the talk page. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 14:19, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Regarding David Sanborn’s technique for keeping his reeds optimally humidified: As a “bell jar” is used to create a (desiccated) vacuum in the laboratory, I suspect that Mr. Sanborn was referring to the glass “Ball (Mason) jar” used in canning the juicy fruits and vegetables in his native Missouri. —Preceding unsigned comment added by POGOPEDIA (talkcontribs) 06:44, 11 August 2010
