Product Description

Product Description

Soaring soprano sax from Bill Clintons favorite sax player, and Americas, too! The hit release thats been atop the charts the entire year.

Amazon.co.uk

Like its predecessors, Kenny G's Breathless is a collection of tuneful, easy-listening instrumentals baited with a couple of pop-soul vocal numbers. This album is built on Kenny G's most obvious strengths: his knack for writing hummable pop hooks and his ability to play those radio-friendly melodies in a breathy, fluid style that invites the listener to lie back and relax. When it comes to background music that's slightly catchier and peppier than most new age music, Kenny G is a master of his genre. The titles of Kenny G's instrumentals on are a good clue to his approach: "Sentimental", "The Joy of Life", "Forever in Love" and "The Wedding Song". Sentimental, in the sense of simplifying life to a set of comfortable feelings, is a good adjective for Kenny G's music, for even his wordless instrumentals push the listener's warm glow buttons while ignoring anything more complicated. The saxophonist himself programmed many of the drum, bass and keyboard parts on Breathless, contributing to the sense that everything's running on autopilot. --Geoffrey Himes

This is a wonderful CD, with music ranging in tone from the poignantly bittersweet to the sweetly joyful. The soothing refrains of Kenny G's sax makes for a very mellow, relaxing listening experience. If you love beautiful music, then this is a must have CD. For those critics who say that this is not true jazz, I would agree with you. It does not mean that it is not worthy. Open up your heart to its beauty, and stop being so pompous and hung up on labels. This is a terrific CD, which should be a part of every music lover's collection.

I first heard Kenny G's music in the early 90's and fell in love with this brilliant musician on the spot. I did have a cassette tape, lost it and as it came to mind again, I decided to order it as a CD. I can't tell you how glad I am that I bought it again. Superb----- you can't get nuch better than that.

Have long enjoyed listening to Kenny G but this was the first album I bought and from the moment it started I was left "Breathless". Havent tired of listening to it some three years later and now also enjoying playing along to it. Well worth every penny and will continue to be played for years to come.

It is easily Kenny G's best album to date. Each track is a masterpiece and listeners will find a 'mood' for every track..Its got a bit of everything....
ENERGY (The Joy of Life, GBop)
VOCALS (By the Time This Night Is Over, Even If My Heart Would Break)
LOVE (Forever in Love, Wedding Song)
SENTIMENTAL (Sentimental, Alone, End of the Night)
and much much more.
Though most of the tracks are from his older albums, Kenny G has taken care to pick and choose the best tracks to fit into Breathless. This is truly a masterpiece.
A MUST MUST BUY.... :-)
The more I listen to it, the more I love it...

I bought this to replace a much loved lost CD bought many years ago. It is an early Kenny G album but one of his best. As usual it was delivered by Amazon in good condition and promptly. I am well pleased with my purchase.

A great collection of songs featuring collaborations with Peabo Bryson amongst others. The album is part produced by Walter Afanasieff who has worked with Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and Celine Dion.

Enjoy taking the lift? Love a good long wait on hold? Find your toes tapping to the radio in the doctor's waiting room? Feel the urge to dance in the Cleaning Products and Binliners aisle in Morrisons? Then you'll love the insipid, soulless faux-jazz muzak of Kenny G.

Thinking about buying this (or any other) Kenny G record? I'll save you the effort; everything he's produced consists of irritatingly sharp pentatonic runs up and down, interrupted occasionally by a wavering, poorly-controlled long note followed by one of his half a dozen twiddly licks. Repeat until you feel the urge to vomit up your own lungs. This is a record of soul crushing dreariness, a reminder of just how suffocatingly vacuous some human beings are. 'Music' of this calibre would be disappointing from a young player still finding their direction, but Mr Gorelick has been playing for well over thirty years and seems to have utterly failed to develop as an artist.
Amazon's Bargain Jazz section has a whole host of classic albums for less than a fiver that are everything 'Breathless' isn't - insightful, enriching, innovative, vital, spiritually nourishing and worthy of your time and money.
