Apr 03 2013

In addition to announcing a 2013 tour together, keyboardist Bob James and saxophonist David Sanborn are also releasing a new album entitled Quartette Humaine via OKeh Records on May 21.  The set marks the first project the duo has recorded together since their landmark album Double Vision was released in 1986.  On Quartette Humaine, Sanborn and James pay tribute to the late pianist and composer Dave Brubeck, especially his work featuring saxophonist Paul Desmond.  The all-acoustic set features Steve Gadd on drums and James Genus on bass and presents four new compositions by James, three new songs by Sanborn and two James-arranged covers including "My Old Flame" and "Geste Humain."  The duo kick off their 2013 tour on June 6 at Town Hall in New York City.  A full list of their concert dates is available here.
