Grammy Winner died today after a battle with prostate cancer

Saxophonist David Sanborn, who won a Grammy, wrote his last post just a few weeks before he died. It was about a concert that was going to happen at the end of May.

The 78-year-old Sanborn died on Sunday after a long battle with prostate cancer. He had planned to play at a jazz club at the end of the month.

Six times Grammy winner and sixteen times Grammy nominee, Sanborn was set to play four shows at Portsmouth, New Hampshire’s Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club on May 24 and 25.

In his last Instagram post, which was on March 31, he talked about the concerts he was planning to play with his quintet.

The post, which was also shared by Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club, said that tickets were limited for the 7 p.m. shows every night.

In an Instagram Story, the club paid tribute to Sanborn by writing, “Rest in Peace.”

Sanborn had been sick for years, but a post about his death says that his health only recently got worse.

“It is with sad and heavy hearts that we convey to you the loss of internationally renowned, 6-time Grammy Award-winning, saxophonist, David Sanborn,” the statement said.

Since 2018, Mr. Sanborn had been dealing with prostate cancer, but he had been able to keep up with his normal concert schedule until recently. In fact, he already had concerts planned out until 2025.

David Sanborn was one of the most important people in modern jazz and pop music. People have said that he “brought the sax back into Rock ‘n’ Roll,” the post ended.

He is survived by his wife Alice Soyer, who writes music as well as playing the piano and singing.

Fans wrote touching comments under Sanborn’s last post to show their condolences.

“Rip Sanborn… what a legend,” one person wrote.

The music that David made as a child really shook my world. A very important person in smooth jazz. Someone wrote, “The thread is never cut!!”

“Brokenhearted over the loss of this amazing, talented man… a true artist..” One person said.

“I’m sorry for your loss. In the mid-1980s, he was the reason I fell in love with smooth jazz. What a wonderful thing!” I wrote a third.

“David, we love you. Someone else said, “Take it easy and thanks for all the lovely music.”

According to his official bio, Sanborn learned to play the saxophone after getting polio when he was three years old.

“Little did the doctors know that it would become a path that I have been able to follow for the rest of my life,” David said at a raise in March.

“Music has helped me in every way: spiritually, creatively, emotionally.” It lets you in through doors you didn’t know were there.

David’s songs will always be a part of my childhood. A very important person in smooth jazz.
