Kenny G

Kenny G has long been the musician many jazz listeners love to hate. A phenomenally successful instrumentalist whose recordings make the pop charts, Kenny G's sound has been a staple on adult contemporary and smooth jazz radio stations since the mid-'80s, making him a household name. Kenny G is a fine player with an attractive sound (influenced a bit by Grover Washington, Jr.) who often caresses melodies, putting a lot of emotion into his solos. Because he does not improvise much (sticking mostly to predictable melody statements), his music largely falls outside of jazz. However, because he is listed at the top of "contemporary jazz" charts and is identified with jazz in the minds of the mass public, he is classified as jazz.

Kenny Gorelick started playing professionally with Barry White's Love Unlimited Orchestra in 1976. He recorded with Cold, Bold & Together (a Seattle-based funk group) and freelanced locally. After graduating from the University of Washington, Kenny G worked with Jeff Lorber Fusion, making two albums with the group. Soon he was signed to Arista, recording his debut as a leader in 1982. His fourth album, Duotones (which included the very popular "Songbird"), made him into a star. Soon he was in demand for guest appearances on recordings of such famous singers as Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, and Natalie Cole. Kenny G's own records have sold remarkably well, particularly Breathless, which has easily topped eight million copies in the U.S.; his total album sales top 30 million copies. The holiday album Miracles, released in 1994, and 1996's Moment continued the momentum of his massive commercial success. He also recorded his own version of the Celine Dion/Titanic smash "My Heart Will Go On" in 1998, but the following year he released Classics in the Key of G, a collection of jazz standards like "'Round Midnight" and "Body and Soul," possibly to reclaim some jazz credibility.

Faith: A Holiday Album was released that same year, followed by a limited-edition re-release of the 1997 Greatest Hits disc. In 2002 Kenny G dipped into tropical territory with Paradise, which featured guest appearances by Brian McKnight and Chanté Moore. This was followed by a music video collection, another holiday album, entitled Wishes, and, in 2003, a second greatest-hits collection, Ultimate Kenny G. Perhaps in a bid to shake up his discography a bit, in 2004 Kenny G released At Last...The Duets Album, which featured "duets" with LeAnn Rimes and Chaka Khan. Two years later, smooth jazz's king of the soprano sax returned to a purely instrumental approach on the brassy, big-band-inspired albums Holiday Collection and I'm in the Mood for Love; 2006 was also the year the artist was dubbed the best golfer in music by Golf Digest, beating out Vince Gill for the number one spot. In 2008, Kenny G released the Latin-inspired Rhythm and Romance. The sax player next drifted toward R&B for 2010's Heart and Soul, which featured guest vocals from Robin Thicke and Babyface. A collection with Rahul Sharma called Namaste followed in 2012, and in 2015 Kenny G released a tribute to bossa nova titled Brazilian Nights. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

I went to a performance of his years ago when he released Duotones and I must admit I was pleasantly surprised by his amazing performance. His breath control is legendary... . . I will never forget how he stepped off the stage and walked in the middle of the audience while holding a note and back to the stage...... Amazing!!!! I tried to hold a note that night after the concert and almost passed out... Songbird is still one of my favorite songs.

When Kenny G was part of Jeff Lorber Fusion and they were doing what I called the college circuit of playing at different colleges in the late 70's-early 80's he stood out so much from the band even a deaf person could tell this guy was going to be a superstar in the music world. It was just unfortunate that jazz purists and smooth jazz lovers still squabble over trying to define his sound. As I said to both of them, It's awesome. Nuff said.

Kenny G has a giant sound and his composition is historic. He is not just music but moreso he's a danasty. When it comes to this style and type of music Kenny G is a majestic Bald Eagle!

Kenny G has inspired my soul since I first heard him in 1996! He has the uncanny skill to touch the listener where he/she hurts & lift them higher or multiply the joy in the heart of the exalted & elevate them even more heavenward!

Greetings, I love an artist who can continually evolve their sound. One-hit wonders are name that because they did not do so. If Kenny G. Has any haters, I can't understand why. The article failed to mention that Mr. G. Puts on phenomenal concerts, in which he further distinguishe s himself, by magically showing up in different sections in the arena and playing. I saw him in Denver and I loved the show. I also love he and Celine Deion's duets. I would love to have him do a Hymns cd. If you could

I adore Mr. Kenny. He did a concert here at Powell Hall with the Powell Hall Symphony.... O M G ! I couldn't sit still. One of my all time favorite musicians. Thanks to my perfect husband, I was lucky enough to be sitting four rows from Kenny with all that talent oozing through the room. It was pure joy. Thank you, Kenny, for sharing your gift with us.

Don't read this because it actually works. You

nearest possible Friday by the love of your life.
Tomorrow will be the best day of your life.
However if you don't post this you will die in 2
days. Now you've started reading so don't stop.
This is so scary put this on 5 songs in 143
minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's
name will come on the screen in big letters.
