I was going through some of my youtube playlist and came across some commercials that I really liked and I came across the Audi commercial that had Kenny G in it. That one cracks me up so much. It made me think though on my childhood. When I was a kid, my parents listened to Kenny G all the time. I don’t remember if it was something that I appreciated back then or not, but I do remember that it made me sleepy.
So I’ve been listening to Kenny G today, for the most part. I like listening to him. His music is calming to me. And I am in awe of his saxophone playing skills. As a girl who really digs true musicians, he is a breath of fresh air. Makes me wish I really took my own musical talent to another level. Alas, I’ve the curse of perpetually unmotivated.
Lots of people I’ve noticed tend to hate on the guy. I don’t know, I guess it’s trendy right now, but I don’t understand why. Has current music trends de-evolved to the point that instrumental music is unworthy of being appreciated? To me that is a grotesque train of thought. And depressing. I really wish that there were more artists like him out there. I don’t know off the top of my head anyone else that does what he does.
The man is a true maestro. I love that he writes music and plays multiple instruments. I didn’t realize that he was still making new music. I am tempted to buy a lot of his stuff right now, but priorities. So far, I’m really liking his earlier works. Thanks to the Audi commercial, I started with “Songbird” and worked my way back from that. I still have a lot of music to listen to so I can’t say an opinion on his progression.
I am impressed that he has been around for as long as he has. Been making music professionally since the 70s. So he’s seen a lot of music trends. I’m glad that in a constantly changing industry he has found a nice niche for himself that makes him unique and interesting. He’s one of the few music acts around now days that I would love to go see in concert. This is coming from a person that has only been to one concert ever(hate going to concerts). I’m that impressed with him.
