About the Event

Grammy winner and multi-platinum artist Kenny G has quickly become the world’s most renowned saxophonist. His music has been a staple on adult contemporary and smooth jazz radio stations since the mid-1980s, due in part to his phenomenally successful album Breathless, the #1 bestselling instrumental record ever. His popularity soared after the release of his hit tune “Songbird,” to which he still attributes his fame. In total, his records have sold more than an astonishing 75 million copies and won him a Grammy award for Best Instrumental Composition. He ventures into uncharted creative territory with his new Latin-inspired record, Rhythm & Romance, which displays a rich, one-of-a-kind tapestry of samba and salsa, ballads and bossa nova and delicately beautiful melodies. This CD is nominated for two Latin Grammy awards. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the biggest-selling instrumental musician of the modern era, in the intimate atmosphere of the Creative Arts Center.
