Born in Birmingham, England, composer, arranger, producer, and accomplished saxophonist Adrian Sanso-Ali has captivated audiences on two continents since his first onstage performance at age 8.
After studying classical piano and clarinet, Adrian was eventually introduced to the saxophone at age 13 by legendary jazz saxophonist Andy Hamilton MBE.
Adrian has collaborated with countless artists during his career, from a number of musical genres. He has also led a number of music groups, including the Smooth Jazz Quartet (2003-2004), and the gospel group Karismata (2009-2012). Adrian played first alto sax with the Orquidea Big Band in Mallorca, Spain, from 1999 to 2003, and was a member of the show choir The Young Ambassadors, with whom he toured the USA a number of times between 1992 and 1996. From 2006 onwards, Adrian has starred in a number of Summer shows produced by the Spanish show company Romantic Corporate, alongside a host of international singers and musicians.
Adrian specializes in the saxophone, performing on a black chrome-plated B&S Alto and a curved Yanagisawa Soprano. His LED-lit Alto is his preferred instrument for soul, rock, and jazz, while his “baby” sax is used primarily to play Kenny G-style ballads, on which he can hold a single note for up to nine minutes using circular breathing!
