About Kenny G
With global sales totaling more than 75 million, GRAMMY and American Music Award winner Kenny G is the biggest-selling instrumental musician of all time. To add to his accolades, Kenny G has both the best-selling instrumental album of all time with Breathless and the best-selling Christmas album of all time with Miracles. A phenomenally successful instrumentalist whose recordings routinely made the pop, R&B, and jazz charts during the 1980s and ’90s, Kenny G‘s sound became a staple on adult contemporary and smooth jazz radio stations. Kenny Gorelick started playing professionally with Barry White‘s Love Unlimited Orchestra in 1976. 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.
