Muze PNote Arranger: Walter Afanasieff.
Muze PNote Kenny G is the quintessence of easy listening. His listener-friendly soprano sax is accessible to all--no hot jazz riffs, no wailing emotions, just easy-to-take, new age pop music.
Muze PNote From the warm notes of the opening "The Joy Of Life" you know you are in a tranquil, meditative territory. Whether he is "Forever In Love" or walking "In The Rain," whether he is feeling "Sentimental" or all "Alone," this album is all about feelings. Kenny is an accomplished enough player to express those feelings through his distinctive, clear tones. The calm palette of his sound is made up of blissful blues and gentle greens, nothing brighter, nothing deeper; and it succeeds as such. Kenny's sax is up-front, with the subdued background instrumentation equally serene; this composer/arranger knows how to showcase his music. He never takes the focus off his saxophone, although he does share a duet with vocalist Peabo Bryson, on the slickly soulful "By The Time The Night Is Over."
Muze PNote Pretend you're floating on a lake, lying on a beach, or swinging on a star; this is music that will transport you to that relaxing place. Sit back, relax, listen, and forget your worries. It is the reason for BREATHLESS' existence.

Artist Overview

Saxophonist Kenny G first gained attention as Kenny Gorelick, a member of second-tier jazz-fusion group the Jeff Lorber Fusion. After going solo, he developed a hyper-slick, instrumental pop sound that featured simple melodies played over gentle beds of jazzy mood music. With the help of clever promotion and marketing from Clive Davis's Arista Records, Kenny G's albums sold millions, and the saxophonist became one of the world's most famous modern instrumentalists. His success caused a great deal of debate in the jazz community, as his sound owed as much to Muzak and easy listening as it did to "serious" jazz.
