Kenny Gorelick, commonly known as Kenny G, was born in Seattle, Washington in 1959.

Kenny, is a successful instrumentalist whose recordings make the pop charts. Kenny's sound has been a staple of "smooth jazz" radio stations since the mid-1980s, making him a household name. Because he does not improvise much, his music largely falls outside of jazz and is scorned by traditional Jazz fans. However, in the public's view he is listed at the top of "contemporary jazz" charts.

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 worked with Jeff Lorber's Fusion, making two albums with the group. Soon he was signed to Arista, recording his debut as a leader in 1982. It was not until his fourth album, however, 'Duotones' (which included the very popular "Songbird"), that he became a star.

Following 'Songbird', he was in demand for guest appearances on recordings with 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.

1994's holiday album 'Miracles' 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.

In 1999 he released, 'Classics In The Key Of G', a collection of jazz standards like "Round Midnight" and "Body & Soul," and made the soprano sax sound appealing to millions of fans, while simultaneously annoying many jazz purists.
