Album Review

Kenny G's work can be divided into three main categories: first, his improvisatory fusion efforts as a Jeff Lorber sideman in the late '70s; second, his R&B-oriented albums of 1982-1985; and third, the elevator Muzak he has specialized in since 1986. Falling into the second category, G Force is a fairly decent urban contemporary release that clearly benefits from the input of Kashif (who serves as executive producer). Kashif was hot at the time, and the R&B singer/producer/songwriter had been burning up the charts with hits by Evelyn "Champagne" King, George Benson, Howard Johnson and himself. Kashif's stamp is all over this sleek album; you can hear it on both the tunes with R&B vocals ("Hi, How Ya Doin'" and "Do Me Right") and groove-oriented instrumentals like "I've Been Missin' You" and "I Wanna Be Yours." G Force, Kenny G's second album, is a long way from the adventurous fusion Kenny G had recorded with Lorber, and the sax solos he was taking in 1983 were hardly breathtaking. But thanks to Kashif's participation, G Force is an enjoyable, R&B-oriented date and is probably the best album he did as a leader (which isn't saying a lot, considering how boring most of his subsequent projects would be).

Customer Reviews

First Review?!! Well then...

Personally, I believe the album shoud come with a warning lable that says "Caution, may get you and your lover in the mood upon listening," but maybe that's just me...

In all technicality, this is an awesome album. The bass lines are really funky and have a good groove. The harmonies are superb, and the balance is well adjusted, seeing there's no deep voice in the group. And as always, KG is a great improv saxophonist. There's many that don't like his style, but being a sax player, I can tell you they're all full of crap. He has a BEAUTIFUL tone, and his embouchure is fine. Great album, five stars!

If you're low on money, AT LEAST buy the track "Hi, how ya do'in."

Is this Jazz or R&B?😁

Kenny G has long been the musician many jazz listeners love to hate. A phenomenally successful instrumentalist whose recordings make the pop charts, Kenny G's sound has been a staple on adult contemporary and smooth jazz radio stations since the mid-'80s, making him a household name. Kenny G is 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...
