Calling this lightweight pop release a jazz CD is like hanging a silhouette next to a Leonardo Da Vinci painting and calling both masterpieces. It's no wonder there are so many copies available of this best-selling turkey.

Surprisingly not horrible

"Released in 1988 this is Kenneth Gorelick's fifth solo album. This is his second smash hit album, topping the jazz charts and nearly hitting number 1 on the Billboard top 200. The sound quality is very good. It is 48 minutes long.

With Kenny G, there seems to be the people who love him and the people who hate him and no middle ground. It is easy to sneer at him with his long wavy hair and soft jazz getting airplay on the easy listening and pop rock stations.

But, for a soft jazz musician, he is better than most. His compositions are fluid and interesting. Many soft jazz groups just go the sound and repetitiously play some pop hook. Kenny G's music is more imaginative than most.

But, it is still soft, pop jazz and is weak in some parts. It still have trouble getting past the opening title track. This is mainly because it was so overplayed, and there some parts that just get on your nerves. But, if it wasn't overplayed and if you listen carefully to the whole thing, you find it is a pretty good composition.

This is typical late eighties soft jazz. It even includes a few vocal tracks. It is the type of music most jazz muscians were playing at the time, even the old time fusion superstars like Billy Cobham and Chic Corea. It isn't as good as something by Billy Cobham, but it is certainly better than most of the mainstream pop jazz of that time."

"All President Bush has to do is play this in the hills of Afghanistan and/or Iraq at a tremendous volume and BELIEVE ME the terrorists will come running out with their hands up screaming for mercy! This CD as well as most ANYTHING by this artist is the key to World Peace, Who needs nuclear weapons when you got Kenny G's music played over the loud speaker?"
