Album Review

Kenny G had a hits collection in 1997, spanning 17 songs and perfectly capturing the time when the smooth jazz saxophonist was one of the most reliable hitmakers in mainstream pop. Released in 2003, Ultimate Kenny G covers more territory, including two previously unreleased tracks (one being a cover of "My Heart Will Go On"), which does not necessarily mean that it's a superior collection, particularly because the albums he released since 1997 didn't quite qualify as big hits or as his best material. This gives the album a slightly stronger MOR bent — which, of course, is remarkable, since Kenny G has always traveled in the middle of the road, but the emphasis on covers ("The Girl from Ipanema," "What a Wonderful World," "The Look of Love," "The Wedding Song") emphasizes this strain in his music; plus, the newer numbers are slicker and more polished than before. This is a small matter, since most of the collection is given over to his biggest songs, but it is enough to recommend Greatest Hits over this collection, even if this will likely satisfy the needs of most casual listeners.

Customer Reviews

Ahhhh!!! My Ears are bleeding!!!

Pat Metheny was right!!!

Why the hell!!!?

Why the he'll would someone write a review talking about skill and technique. This guy pours his pure heart and soul into every exhilarating breath. It's so refreshing, warm and romantic, and it's a girl pleaser. Again if ya gonna review a guys skill and technic go head bc you don't know great music. It's like going to a halloween party dressed as Santa clause!!

To all people who like Kenny g

What ever you guys do don't buy what a wonderful world. That is the one song that soils the good name of jazz. everything else is still bad but at least those tunes are soley his own stuff no overdubbing.


Born: June 5, 1956 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

A phenomenally successful instrumentalist whose recordings routinely made the pop, R&B, and jazz charts during the 1980s and '90s, Kenny G's sound became a staple on adult contemporary and smooth jazz radio stations. He's a fine player with an attractive sound (influenced a bit by Grover Washington, Jr.) who often caresses melodies, putting a lot of emotion into his solos. Because he does not improvise much (sticking mostly to predictable melody statements), his music largely falls outside of jazz....
