With a line of people waiting behind us we each took just a brief moment to meet Sanborn. Alma, Isaac's mom, took the opportunity to profusely thank the jazz icon for his thoughtfulness and kindness towards her son. My wife, Ronda, was able to share that his song "The Dream" (from the album A Change of Heart) had been our selection for the first dance at our wedding. I brought up As We Speak. This is my favorite Sanborn album and I already knew that it is his favorite as well. I mentioned the song "Rain On Christmas." This elicited a genuine smile of appreciation and the wistful remembrance, "I wrote that song on a rainy Christmas morning while looking out my front window in Malibu."

In the end it was a magical day that an adorable young boy will forever cherish. Sanborn wasn't wearing a cape that day, but nonetheless was very much a superhero.
