With over 70 million albums sold to date, Kenny G has proven himself to be one of the most gifted musicians in the world. His newest album Paradise is as breathtakingly romantic and beautiful as fans would expect from such an incredible instrumentalist. The much-anticipated Paradise is led by the single "One More Time" featuring Chante Moore.

Kenny G has bragging rights of being the best selling saxophone player in history. The musician rose to fame in the 1980s, and has won the devotion of millions of fans of light jazz and pop music.

Kenny G elevates the soprano sax to new heights with a smooth and fluid method to his melodies, which continue to receive heavy airplay on adult contemporary and lite radio stations across the country.

The musician's real name is Kenneth Gorelick, but was changed to Kenny G in 1976, when he began playing saxophone professionally at age 17 with

KENNY G Breathless

Album · 1992 · Pop/Art Song/Folk
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners

Wow! did you know that this album from 1992, has sold over 15 Million copies? as P.T. Barnum once said, "There is a sucker born every minute" But you have to give Kenny credit, he sure knew how to cash in on boring faceless fuzak. In fact Kenny has sold over 75 million records world wide, 75 Million!

I listened to the YouTube videos of this album, No way would I let Breathless sit next to any Miles Davis or John Coltrane Albums, that would be sacrilege indeed, Kenny isn't really a bad saxophonist though, there is some talent there, and his tone isn't that bad either to my ears, but the boring, syrupy new age beats, and tepid synthesizers are what do me in, this would be great music to sleep to, in fact I was drinking a double espresso while listening to it.

If you ever get a chance to hear Pat Metheny's thoughts on Kenny G, do your self a favor, and Google it, I enjoy Pat's rants on Kennny more than Kenny's music itself, though Pat does come off as a bit bitter, sort of reminds me of Wynton Marsalis and his criticism of the electric music of Miles Davis, Probably doesn't help Pat's ego, knowing that Breathless has probably sold more than every album Pat has ever made.

If you like back ground music, or music that's not to exciting, I say explore away, but For me, I can't even relax to this music, The whole time I am comparing it to challenging music I typically listen to, even as commercial music, Breathless fails, with not much of a blues base, even the slightest blues fire could have lifted this music up a notch to my ears, But Kenny sure is a rich guy, more power to him.
