ABOUT KENNY G
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.
Kenny Gorelick started playing professionally with Barry White‘s Love Unlimited Orchestra in 1976. He recorded with Cold, Bold & Together (a Seattle-based funk group) and freelanced locally. After graduating from the University of Washington, Kenny G worked with Jeff Lorber Fusion, making two albums with the group. Soon he was signed to Arista, recording his debut as a leader in 1982. His fourth album, Duotones (which included the very popular “Songbird”), made him into a star. Soon he was in demand for guest appearances on recordings of such famous singers as Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, and Natalie Cole. Kenny G’s own records have sold remarkably well, particularly Breathless, which has easily topped eight million copies in the U.S.; his total album sales top 30 million copies. The holiday album Miracles, released in 1994, and 1996’s Moment continued the momentum of his massive commercial success. He also recorded his own version of the Celine Dion/Titanic smash “My Heart Will Go On” in 1998, but the following year he released Classics in the Key of G, a collection of jazz standards like “‘Round Midnight” and “Body and Soul,” possibly to reclaim some jazz credibility.
Faith: A Holiday Album was released that same year, followed by a limited-edition re-release of the 1997 Greatest Hits disc. In 2002 Kenny G dipped into tropical territory with Paradise, which featured guest appearances by Brian McKnight and Chanté Moore. This was followed by a music video collection, another holiday album, entitled Wishes, and, in 2003, a second greatest-hits collection, Ultimate Kenny G. Perhaps in a bid to shake up his discography a bit, in 2004 Kenny G released At Last…The Duets Album, which featured “duets” with LeAnn Rimes and Chaka Khan. Two years later, smooth jazz’s king of the soprano sax returned to a purely instrumental approach on the brassy, big-band-inspired albums Holiday Collection and I’m in the Mood for Love; 2006 was also the year the artist was dubbed the best golfer in music by Golf Digest, beating out Vince Gill for the number one spot. In 2008, Kenny G released the Latin-inspired Rhythm and Romance. The sax player next drifted toward R&B for 2010’s Heart and Soul, which featured guest vocals from Robin Thicke and Babyface. A collection with Rahul Sharma called Namaste followed in 2012, and in 2015 Kenny G released a tribute to bossa nova titled Brazilian Nights.
ABOUT THE TENORS
A decade after forming in their native Canada, The Tenors are an international success story. With their robust singing and seamless blend of classical and contemporary pop textures, Victor Micallef, Clifton Murray, and Fraser Walters have scored multi-platinum sales, performed for the likes of Oprah Winfrey and HM Queen Elizabeth II and shared stages with superstars ranging from Paul McCartney to Justin Bieber.
The group’s eclectic virtuosity is on full display when The Tenors perform live. “We live and breathe by our live show,” says Murray. “It’s where we come from as artists, and how we got to where we are today. Everything comes down to, how do we constantly create a better experience live? We’re working with some great choreographers and directors to make sure we get everything out of each song and moment.”
That enthusiasm is shared by The Tenors. “When we create in the studio, it’s beautiful to be in that zone,” says Micallef. “But I think we all agree that there’s nothing like getting on stage and feeling that reciprocal energy go back and forth between the audience and us. It’s something you can’t put into words. It’s magic. And we can’t wait to start sharing it again.” The Tenors have performed all over the world including headlining tours across North America, Europe, Asia, and South Africa. Their widespread popularity has also enabled them to extend their talents to philanthropic endeavors with many charitable organizations including The Special Olympics, The David Foster Foundation, The Starkey Hearing Foundation, and for much needed orphan care in Bulembu, Swaziland. The Tenors have also been 'We Day' Ambassadors for many years, encouraging young people worldwide towards volunteering in communities both locally and globally; this has resulted in several life-changing trips for The Tenors to Africa and India with the organization.
It's safe to say The Tenors have truly embraced the art of harmony in all of their endeavors.
