Another Hand (1991) marked an artistic return-to-form for the alto sax-man, and here he continues a fruitful partnership with ex-Miles Davis bassist/producer Marcus Miller. Shalimar's Howard Hewitt sings on a cover of Marvin Gaye's "Got To Give It Up," the first single. Otherwise this five-time Grammy winner delivers a hard-blowing fusion session that will solidify, and build on, his fan base. --Jeff Bateman

"I bought this CD back in '96, a year or so after it was released, and delayed my purchase because I thought it wasn't a good Sanborn release. Unexpectedly, this CD really gives you some regular 'Sanborn-type' compositions, especially after the free formed and conceptual 'Another Hand', and the laid-back/ballads 'Pearls'. It was 'Another Hand's' disappointment which really kept me off 'Hearsay'. Upon my first listen, I realized that Sanborn was making a strong effort to regain his old audience with some upbeat tunes along with the production help again of Marcus Miller. 'Jaws' really lights up the joint and 'Long Goodbye', 'Little Face', and 'Back to Memphis', all have a strong blues influence which works really well. This one is worth a strong listen to."

"Contrasting an earlier reviewer, I find this entry from sax wizard David Sanborn to be a highly enjoyable musical experience. Sanborn weaves a varied listening tapestry with slow jams to mid-tempo gems to downright funky scorchers. His reworking of Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give It Up" pays homage to the original party song, which in itself was more of an instrumental (with Gaye's voice serving as the "horn"). Other strong highlights are the African-influenced "Ojiji" and the down-home sound of "Back to Memphis.""
