David Sanborn
Maverick saxophonist David Sanborn, who has performed alongside such heavyweights as James Brown, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, and innumerable others is stepping up in support of young musicians across the country and participating in two exclusive auctions to benefit the VH1 Save The Music Foundation, which donates instruments for public school music programs.



Beginning on October 14th and closing on October 24th on eBay.com, bidders can choose between two auction packages. The first consists of two tickets to any one of Sanborn’s upcoming tour dates (listed below), a meet and greet with Sanborn, a saxophone to be signed and presented at the meet and greet, and an autographed copy of Sanborn’s acclaimed new CD Here and Gone (Decca). The second package boasts a one-hour private saxophone lesson with Sanborn, an autographed saxophone to be presented at the lesson, and a signed copy of Here and Gone.



A tribute to saxophonists Hank Crawford and David “Fathead” Newman, two musicians who helped define soul music as part of Ray Charles’ band, Here and Gone was released by Decca Records on August 12, 2008, and has already received a stream of illustrious reviews. The album features the rhythm section of Steve Gadd (drums) and Christian McBride (bass), special guests Eric Clapton, Joss Stone, Sam Moore, Derek Trucks, and Anthony Wilson, and was produced by the legendary Phil Ramone. One of the most identifiable sounds in popular music, Sanborn’s sax work is featured throughout, with Sanborn throwing down some of his rawest, most thrilling playing yet heard on record.



Now in its eleventh year, the VH1 Save The Music Foundation has donated $43 million worth of musical instruments for 1,600 public schools in over 100 cities around the country, enriching the lives of over 1.2 million public school students. For more information on the auctions go to universalmusicstore.com.
