About Sanborn Sessions
A modern reimagining of the cult-classic music show Night Music
—described by Nashville Scene as “the greatest music show you never watched”—Sanborn Sessions
is a gathering of the preeminent musicians of our time to explore the essence of music and being a musician through song and conversation.
Hosted from his home studio in New York, Sanborn invites a new artist to jam with him and his band each episode.
“We do it from my home studio,” he says. “I have a couple different artists on, and we talk about music and the creative process. We rehearse and work out a tune. It’s very relaxed, fly-on-the-wall stuff.”
Viewers of Sanborn Sessions
are privy not only to the phenomenal music produced when a handful of world class musicians gather in a room together to jam- but also to the authentic conversation that arises in between playing, which teases out the various perspectives and experiences of Sanborn, the band, and their esteemed guests.
Lacking a script or predetermined structure, Sanborn Sessions
allows viewers to become voyeurs—flies on the wall—as renowned artists from all genres show up, hang out, and play music.
