Details of event
In a recording career that spans almost three decades and 23 albums, Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Kenny G has grafted elements of R&B, pop and Latin to a jazz foundation solidifying his reputation as the premiere artist in contemporary jazz. Since the early '80s, his combination of unparalleled instrumental chops and indelible melodies has resulted in sales of more than 75 million records worldwide (45 million in the U.S. alone) and more than a dozen climbs to the top of Billboard's contemporary jazz chart.
In many respects, where it took him was back to the beginning - the R&B of the early and mid 1970s that Kenny soaked up during his teen years at an inner-city Seattle high school where he mixed with a culturally diverse student body at a young age. Inspired by the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire and Grover Washington, Jr., he was only 17 when he landed a gig with Barry White and his Love Unlimited Orchestra at the Paramount Northwest Theater (now the Paramount Theater) in 1973. After high school, the gigs with R&B and contemporary jazz artists like White and Jeff Lorber kept coming.
In 1982, he landed a record deal with Arista and launched a solo career with three critically
acclaimed jazz albums - Kenny G (1982), G-Force (1983) and Gravity (1985). By the '90s, he was a multi-platinum seller and a frequent collaborator with some of the most iconic figures in American popular music, including Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Natalie Cole and Frank Sinatra. His subsequent studio albums, Silhouette (1988) and Breathless (1992), were hugely successful, the latter selling more than 12 million records in the U.S. alone and spawning the Grammy-winning single, "Forever in Love."
Other career highlights include Miracles, a 1994 holiday album that took him to the top of the
Billboard chart for the first time and has since become the best-selling holiday album of all time. His two holiday albums since then - Faith in 1999 and Wishes in 2002 - have been similarly successful. At Last. The Duets Album, released in 2004, featured performances by Barbara Streisand, Burt Bacharach and LeAnn Rimes and many others.
In 2008 with the release of Rhythm and Romance, an album that united him with
an all-star lineup of Latin musicians. Heart and Soul is the thirteenth studio album by Kenny G, which was released on June 29, 2010..It was nominated for a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Album.
