Saxophonist David Sanborn's upcoming summer release Here and Gone is packed
with musical star power. Guest artists include Eric Clapton, Joss Stone, Sam
Moore, Derek Trucks and Anthony Wilson. Drummer Steve Gadd and bassist
Christian McBride join Sanborn on the album, set to be released on Aug. 12
by the Decca Label Group.

The record, according to a press release, is a tribute to '60s R&B-oriented
jazz musicians in the style of Hank Crawford and David "Fathead" Newman. The
album was produced by Phil Ramone.

Collaborating with other major artists is nothing new for Sanborn. He's
worked with Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder and the Rolling Stones, as well as
contributing to David Bowie on 1975's Young Americans and Bruce Springsteen
on Born to Run. Sanborn was featured on Clapton's own 1989 album Journeyman.

He's also known for his two-season NBC television series Night Music,
produced by Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels. The program, which
aired from 1988 to 1990, served as a late-night showcase for an assortment
of musicians like Sonny Rollins, Shinehead, Sister Carol, Sonic Youth, Joe
Sample, Slim Gaillard and Pere Ubu.

Sanborn, 62, has released 22 solo albums since 1975, according to his web
site. Sanborn's last release was 2005's Closer.
