Since 1928, when Johnny Hodges brought his gorgeous tone to Duke Ellington's orchestra, some of jazz's finest soloists have chosen the alto sax, including the great Benny Carter, the genius of Charlie Parker, the hard bopping Sonny Stitt, the joyful playing of Julian Cannonball Adderley and the raw bluesy sound of Hank Crawford. Following his popular performance during the Center's Grand Opening week, Davd Sanborn returns to Dallas. His signature bluesy tone and incredible technique make the six-time Grammy and multi- platinum award winner the most recognized alto sax sound in contemporary music today.
Joining him is Candy Dulfer. Dutch-born and largely self-taught, this platinum-selling artist made her name in the pop music world, as a soloist for major stars Prince, Pink Floyd, Van Morrison and Dave Stewart.
