The track features David Sanborn on saxophone and in fact White composed this infectious tune with Sanborn in mind. As White explains, “It came to me one day while I was driving. I kept thinking, 'this has to be something outstanding. I can't go to David Sanborn with anything less!' The excitement about having him play on my record inspired an up-tempo rhythm, so I took it in that direction."
Some of the energy fueling this record is the realization of White's longtime dream to collaborate with Sanborn. White has been a fan of the saxophonist for decades. "David is someone whom I've wanted to play with for the longest time," he explains. "This is someone who played at Woodstock and recorded with David Bowie. His sound has become the inspiration for many of my contemporaries. He's a legend to me and to just about every musician I know."
‘Here We Go’ will be released March 13 on the Heads Up label, a division of Concord Music Group.
