Kenny G is the quintessence of easy listening. His listener-friendly soprano sax is accessible to all--no hot jazz riffs, no wailing emotions, just easy-to-take, new age pop music.
From the warm notes of the opening "The Joy Of Life" you know you are in a tranquil, meditative territory. Whether he is "Forever In Love" or walking "In The Rain," whether he is feeling "Sentimental" or all "Alone," this album is all about feelings. Kenny is an accomplished enough player to express those feelings through his distinctive, clear tones. The calm palette of his sound is made up of blissful blues and gentle greens, nothing brighter, nothing deeper; and it succeeds as such. Kenny's sax is up-front, with the subdued background instrumentation equally serene; this composer/arranger knows how to showcase his music. He never takes the focus off his saxophone, although he does share a duet with vocalist Peabo Bryson, on the slickly soulful "By The Time The Night Is Over."
Pretend you're floating on a lake, lying on a beach, or swinging on a star; this is music that will transport you to that relaxing place. Sit back, relax, listen, and forget your worries. It is the reason for BREATHLESS' existence.
