David Sanborn announces plans for St. Louis Jazz Festival
|Aug 09 2012|
Legendary saxophonist David Sanborn will return to his hometown for a new music festival called the David Sanborn St. Louis Jazz Festival, set to be held mid-September 2013 in Grand Center. Sanborn says, "I've never had my name on a festival before. I don't want to say it's embarrassing but it's certainly humbling. It's not really about me, and that's not something I would push at all. But if the people helping to organize this think it has some sort of advantage, then whatever it takes to make this thing happen and further the music, I'm all for it." Sanborn met with organizers and potential sponsors of the festival to discuss details about the planned annual event in July. The Grammy winner is currently on tour with Brian Culbertson and is set to perform in Dallas, Texas tonight (August 9).
