David Sandborn has  released  25  albums,  won  six  Grammy  
Awards,  and  has  had  eight  Gold  albums  and  one  Platinum  album.  Having  inspired  countless  other  musicians,  Sanborn  has  worked  in  many  genres  which  typically  blend  instrumental  pop,  R&B,  and  lately,  more  and  more  traditional jazz. He released his first solo album, Taking Off, in 1975, but has been playing the saxophone since before he was in high school when he was inspired by the great Chicago blues artists near his hometown of St. Louis.

Having contracted polio at the age of three, Sanborn was introduced to the saxophone  as  part  of  his  treatment  therapy.  By  the  age  of  14,  he  was  able  to  play  with  legends  such  as  Albert  King  and  Little  Milton.  Sanborn  went  on  to  study  music  at  Northwestern  University  before  transferring  to  the  University of Iowa where he played and studied with the great saxophonist JR Monterose.
