Does anyone here like the G?

Pat Metheney definitely doesn't.

I'm just curious, because I want to know if anyone here likes him. It would be interesting to know.

latebloomer (latebloomer), Wednesday, 4 August 2004 20:42 (seventeen years ago) link

And Richard Thompson agrees with Metheney.

Just be patient, they'll come on here soon enough...

Kenny G knows cyclic breathing -- hell, I wish I could do that.

He looks exactly like Geddy Lee (at least his profile does), and their names rhyme, too!!

I'd buy Kenny G Salutes The Magic Of Rush. No, I would.

Has there been an instrumental single since "Songbird" that's charted as high?

I'd take "Songbird" over pretty much anything on the radio today.

I don't mind him. Not-bad study music.

great dj, but I find some of that musique concrete a tad oblique

eight years pass...

wikipedia says that he played in barry white's love unlimited orchestra when he was 17 and still in high school, crazy

does he have any "cool" early records or any weird sidesteps like song x by pat methany or something?

Classics in the Key of G might be my favourite album title ever

The Kashif produced/sung stuff is very digestible 80s r&b

"Hi, How Ya doin" made it onto a Street Sounds comp

Kenny G knows cyclic breathing -- hell, I wish I could do that.

In 1997, a Guinness World Record was set for longest held musical note. Kenny G used circular breathing to sustain an E-flat on a saxophone for 45 minutes and 47 seconds.

:-o and :)

On February 2000, Vann Burchfield set a new Guinness world record for circular breathing, holding one continuous note for 47 minutes, 6 seconds, surpassing Kenny G’s record.

:( and ;_;

E flat is such a great note.

dinnerboat, Friday, 12 August 2016 15:31 (five years ago) link

seems like he should've played a G

tylerw, Friday, 12 August 2016 20:22 (five years ago) link

Don't think he'd have been successful if he'd called himself Kenny E. Flatt though. Maybe in bluegrass. As a bluegrass sax player.

I'm getting slight "Celine Dion 33 1/3 book" vibes with that description. Interesting.

He’s a lot better than Kenny H
