Which Ottawa Jazz Festival Headliner is Selling his New York Townhouse for $12 million?

Ottawa CitizenJune 12, 2013
Why, it’s saxophonist David Sanborn, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday in this lavishly illustrated story.

The paper’s Jason Sheftell reports that Sanborn and his wife have lived at the townhouse off Columbus Avenue and West 69th Street for 25 years. Sanborn has achieved some fine work-life balancing there, having recorded six albums in his townhouse’s top-floor music studio.
My favourite line in the story: “Sanborn and his wife, who have Chihuahuas named Miles (after Davis) and Lucy, are looking for a house in the country.”

Sanborn plays in Confederation Park with a quartet that he co-leads with pianist Bob James on June 24 at 8:30 p.m.
