Picks and Pans Review: Hideaway

David Sanborn

Sanborn is the studio session saxophonist; he played behind Carly Simon, Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon, among others. Being a professional backer-up hasn't affected his independent efforts in the past, but this album contains a lot of stretches in which he spits out phrases like a sideman who has only a few bars to get his licks in. As a result, the air is filled with little chunks of music that bear no relationship to one another. There are exceptions, fortunately. On both the ballad-like Lisa and the up-tempo Again an' Again, Sanborn builds cool, logical lines that show why he is reckoned among the best jazz-rock fusioneers.
