Product Description

Product Description

Kenny G ~ Classics In The Key Of G

Amazon.co.uk

Offering a tribute to composers of previous generations, soprano saxophonist Kenny G uses his 11th career release to present his interpretations of various standards and assorted chestnuts from the past century. G's approach is as smooth and gentle as ever, and anyone in the market for mild-mannered, relaxing jazz should be satisfied with this package. Highlights include a slowly evolving version of George Gershwin's "Summertime", with George Benson on guitar, and a largely respectful rendering of Monk's "'Round Midnight". Subdued orchestral backing is used throughout the recording, and two vocal selections are included: a "duet" with the Louis Armstrong vocal track from "What a Wonderful World", and the subdued samba of "The Girl from Ipanema". which features singer Bebel Gilberto, daughter of the song's original vocalists. That selection is reprised instrumentally on an un-credited, non-indexed 11th track that is heard about 20 seconds after the conclusion of Harold Arlen's "Over the Rainbow". Languid listening from start to finish. --Terry Wood

Like it or not there is a place in the world for this type of music and while it is easy to dismiss him (perhaps too easy!) this disc is actually, taken on it's own merits, quite enjoyable. He generally does faithful versions on all these tacks, stand-outs being "Look Of Love", "Desafinado" and "The Girl From Ipanema" so while there are no surprises there is a certain warm and fuzzy feeling one gets from this disc. Something to put on while peddling about the house or if you've guests coming over....something that set's a tone.
In the end, a disc such as this does not require much from the listener...other than understanding that this is not intended as groundbreaking jazz by any means. More than anything it's music to relax to, perhaps hum along and wonder... what ever happened to that one special girl that got away, a long,long time ago....

Classics in the Key of G

Although not his newest work - this certain does what it says on the tin.

The classic tracks and covers are brilliant. He uses his own personal style to bring these tracks to life and make the instrument 'sing'.

I would certainly recommend this album - Brilliant
