David Sanborn Obituary: Renowned jazz saxophonist passes away at the age of 78.

David Sanborn Obituary – David Sanborn, a legendary saxophonist recognized for his collaborations with David Bowie, Stevie Wonder, and other influential musicians, passed away at the age of 78.

Sanborn succumbed to prostate cancer on Sunday in Terrytown, New York, following a prolonged battle with the disease. His declining health compelled him to cancel several shows that were scheduled earlier this month.

According to a statement posted on his X account, “Mr. Sanborn had been bravely confronting prostate cancer since 2018, managing to maintain his regular concert schedule until recently. In fact, he had concerts planned as far ahead as 2025.”

Sanborn gained prominence as a highly regarded session saxophonist and also released several albums of his own.

His notable contributions include playing on Stevie Wonder’s 1972 track “Tuesday Heartbreak,” featuring on David Bowie’s 1975 album “Young Americans,” and performing on James Taylor’s rendition of “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You).”

Throughout his illustrious career, Sanborn was honored with six Grammy awards, eight gold albums, and one platinum album.
