On West 69th, a familiar brownstone is going on the market. Just across from Lincoln Center, a spot he has played many times, jazz saxophonist David Sanborn is putting his upper West Side dwelling on the market after 25 years. With five bedrooms, two outdoor spaces, a meditation room, and a sky-lit top-floor (which Sanborn used as a studio), the brownstone is selling at $12 million. Sanborn is one of the most successful sax players of our time: he has not only played a major role in the jazz world, but also has influenced R&B, pop and rock players. Of his career’s 24 albums, six have earned Grammys, eight have gone gold, and one has hit platinum. He has worked extensively as a studio player as well, sitting for such big and diverse names as James Brown, Cat Stevens, Little Feat, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, and The Grateful Dead. Shaun Osher, broker with CORE real estate agency, got the listing. He’s one of Sanborn’s friends. The New York Daily News reports why the meditative sax player and his wife would leave such a comfortable haven: “we don’t need this much house anymore.” Emerald Inn Relocates
