David Sanborn Trio featuring Joey DeFrancesco & Byron Landham /
Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue
David Sanborn is one of the most influential and original saxophone voices in contemporary music. In three-and-a-half decades, he released 24 albums, garnering six Grammys, eight gold albums and one platinum. Joining Sanborn is B3 monster Joey DeFrancesco, who signed an exclusive recording contract with Columbia Records at the ripe old age of 17. Since then he has won theDownBeat Critics and Readers poll every year since 2002. He was Grammy-nominated for his cds Falling In Love Again (2004) and Never Can Say Goodbye (2010).
The San Francisco Chronicle calls Trombone Shorty “New Orleans’ brightest new star in a generation.” The trombonist-trumpeter-vocalist Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews is guaranteed to blow the roof off the State Theatre as his band stirs together old-school New Orleans jazz, funk and soul, laced with hard-rock power chords and hip-hop beats. He will be joined by Mike Ballard (bass), Tim McFatter (tenor sax), Pete Murano, guitar, Dan Oestreicher, baritone sax, Joey Peebles, drums, and Dwayne Williams, percussion.
