Sanborn was my first influence on sax. I still dig him and yes he is one of the greatest as far as jazz fusion goes. For sax more so then many instruments it gets broken into:
funk- Maceo Parker, Lenny Pickett
Bebop-Charlie Parker, Coltrane
West Coast- Cannonball, Stan Getz
The Fusion where guys like Sanborn come in.
Sanborn sort of that guy who did all the R&B stuff, played with Bowie, played with Clapton, so I'm not surprised he makes a lot of lists. He's a great player though no doubt about it. Probably the most copied sound in the history of sax.
