Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

David Sanborn - Hearsay (1994)
Not the best Sanborn album, but he was still collaborating with bassist/composer/producer/ Marcus Miller, so it can't be too bad. I realize it's unfair to compare this to albums released ten years earlier, but I just can't help myself. Still, if you like any of his '80s output, there's something here for you.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #116
Peak on Billboard's Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart: #2
Peak on Billboard's R&B albums chart: #39
Tracks: My picks are The Long Goodbye, Little Face, and Back to Memphis. Even though it's not very original, I dig the cover of Got To Give It Up simply because I like the song. Skip the terribly dated track Big Foot.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: None. It seems like I would have had this upon release but since I was willfully unemployed in '94, maybe I just didn't have the money to spend. I picked it up much later.
I've seen Sanborn in concert twice and I'd like to see him at least once more before he quits touring.
