​A pair of St. Louis natives—Doobie Brothers’ pianist/singer Michael McDonald and vocalist Brian Owens—hang out with saxophonist David Sanborn on the latest episode of the saxophonist’s Sanborn Sessions show.

Sanborn’s show, a reimagined version of his Night Music, finds the titular performer chatting and performing with folks from across a range of musics at his New York home.

Late last year, it premiered with an episode that paired the saxophonist with vocalist Kandace Springs.

For additional information about the show and to see episodes, visit the Sanborn Sessions homepage or its YouTube channel.
