David Sanborn Net Worth $3 Million Dollars

David Sanborn Net Worth: David Sanborn is an American alto saxophonist that has a net worth of $3 million dollars. Produced July 30, 1945 in Tampa, Florida, he could be considered the most powerful saxophonist in pop, R&B and crossover players of the previous twenty years. While the majority of his records have now been in the dance music/R&B classifications, Sanborn is a capable jazz musician as well. His greatest contributions to music have been his passionate sound and his emotional interpretations of tunes which generally uplift any record he gives to. Sanborn’s playing style is readily identifiable within two or three notes. Growing up in St. Louis, Sanborn played with many Chicago blues greats (including Albert King) and became a proficient alto saxophonist despite fighting polio in his youth. Over time, he’s worked with many pop musicians but has made his biggest impact directing his own groups.

#Fact
1Attended Northwestern University (Evanston, IL).

#Quote
1[on participating in a wide variety of musical venues] I really enjoy jumping around like that. I think it keeps you fresh and prevents you from getting locked into doing things one way. It gives you an understanding that music is a continuum; there's no separation with pop music over here and jazz over there.
2[on being asked to describe how music has evolved over his musical career] I'm probably the worst person to judge that. I am not aware of the incremental changes. It's just like getting older: you don't see it yourself because you see yourself every day. You are not as aware of the process as someone looking at it from the outside who may only see you occasionally.
3[on the recipe for becoming a successful musician] I think I just kind of put one foot in front of the other and wasn't discouraged by setbacks. There are an awful lot of musicians out there. It's about hanging in there, working hard, and being ready for a break, when and if it occurs. That's really all you can do. Work hard and hope you get lucky.
