David Sanborn: The Curtain Rises on Sanborn Sessions

Read "David Sanborn: The Curtain Rises on Sanborn Sessions" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Listed alphabetically, as opposed to first, second, and third place, Cannonball Adderley, Charlie Parker, and David Sanborn are as good as it gets when discussing the best and most influential alto saxophone players of all-time.

Bob Sheppard: The Clark Kent of Jazz

Read "Bob Sheppard: The Clark Kent of Jazz" reviewed by Jim Worsley
