  • August 27, 2014 Musical Critique, Ponderous Puffery, or Hogwash?

    Kenny G is a great musician, but this book is a disappointment. It shows brief musical passages, but it doesn't show the complete songs. For example, Example 1 "Songbird", Example 2 "Silhouette", and Example 3 "Forever in Love" are on page 5. Example 4 "Going Home", Example 5 "Morning...

    ", and Example 6 "Silhouette" are on page 6. Examples 7, 8, and 9 "Songbird" are on pages 7 and 8 and include some theoretical discussion as well as a lot of ponderous puffery. Also, the examples on the CD are cut short, which is irritating. This book may be useful as an in-depth study of the author's interpretation of Kenny G's music, but not much use if you're trying to learn the songs from start to finish. I gave this book 2 stars (instead of 1 star) because I thought some Kenny G enthusiasts might find the critiques interesting. I personally think much of it is hogwash. I recommend "Kenny G - Breathless" and the CD of the same name, and "Kenny G - the Moment" and the CD.

  • July 23, 2011 Interesting but...

    Songs really too short to catch the whole "spirit" of Kenny G. Really annoying ! Would be better to transmit all reviews to editor to correct that.

  • April 18, 2009 Backing tracks too short

    The quality of Best of Kenny G was fine, but I was a bit disappointed to discover that the backing tracks were all abridged versions - I had not read anywhere that that would be the case - I was expecting a few full length backing tracks.
