Kenny G


In a recording career that spans almost three decades and 24 albums, Grammy® Award-winning saxophonist Kenny G has grafted elements of R&B, pop, and Latin music to a jazz foundation, solidifying his reputation as a premier 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.

Inspired by the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire and Grover Washington Jr., Kenny G was only 17 when he landed a gig with Barry White and his Love Unlimited Orchestra at the Paramount Northwest Theater in 1973. After high school, 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.

A phenomenally successful instrumentalist, Kenny G’s sound has become a staple on adult contemporary and smooth jazz radio stations.
