In the autumn of 2007, Sabler released his fourth album, Sweet Drive, which confirms that the artist has remained true to his commitment to maintain lofty standards. The Brian Bromberg-produced disc is a varied, soulful body of contemporary jazz, R&B and adult pop music that delivers a master’s class level of musicianship, performance and production on eight thoughtfully composed originals and four carefully selected classics. Accomplished musicians Jeff Lorber, Eric Marienthal, Ricky Peterson, Vinnie Colaiuta, Alex Acuna and Gary Meek played on the record while the Jerry Hey-orchestrated horn section added warmth, fullness and explosive energy to the tracks. Critics praised Sweet Drive and the collection was nominated as Album of the Year at the 2008 Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards. Sabler, who performed at the awards show in March, earned a second nomination as Guitarist of the Year. Smooth jazz radio program Café Jazz named Sabler the #1 most played Canadian artist in 2007 while Sweet Drive was the #1 most played album by a Canadian artist, and “Club Street” was the #2 most played single by a Canadian artist.
