Marc Iacona and John Nugent are good friends with Julie Lokin and Danny Melnick, fellow concert promoters in NYC. They are also presenting this fantastic show, so if you are in NYC this coming week on Thursday, June 6 at 8pm saxophonist David Sanborn and pianist Bob James kick off their first tour together!

Featured on drums are Steve Gadd and bassist James Genus. Reserved tickets are $77 and $57, available at Ticketmaster.com and the Town Hall box office starting May 17. The concert is at Town Hall, 123 West 43rd Street, NYC. Produced by New Audiences and Absolutely Live.

David Sanborn, six-time Grammy Award winner who has collaborated with Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder and Bruce Springsteen, and Bob James, two-time Grammy Award winner and founder of the group Foreplay, are performing together for the first time.

Sanborn and James’ 1986 recording, “Double Vision,” spent 63 weeks on the Billboard charts -- but they never toured. Reuniting 27 years later for a new recording, "Quartette Humaine," on the newly relaunched OKeh Records label, the pair will tour for the first time and this will be their NYC concert debut.

Saxophonist David Sanborn has released 24 albums, won six Grammy awards, and collected eight Gold and one Platinum album, in a career dating back to an appearance at Woodstock. An inspiration to musicians who have followed in his footsteps, Sanborn has worked in many genres that blend instrumental pop, R&B and lately, more traditional jazz.

Pianist Bob James is best known for his instrumental theme for the sitcom “Taxi,” for which he composed all the original music used in that series for its entire run. James was discovered by Quincy Jones in 1963, the year he recorded his first solo album. He has produced more than 58 albums, receiving innumerable awards and 15 Grammy nominations. Their new band is a quartet, and features the legendary Steve Gadd on drums and Saturday Night Live's James Genus on bass.

Spread the word and support the start of this great tour - good seats still remain.

The event is presented by Absolutely Live Entertainment and New Audiences and is part of the Blue Note Jazz Festival.
