Kenny G

The Miracles Holiday and Hits Tour 2022

The sound of Kenny G’s saxophone is as iconic as his curly coif; indeed, both are instantly recognizable.

After director Penny Lane’s critically acclaimed HBO documentary, Listening to Kenny G – which humorously reconsiders the purist critical backlash to his music – and a demand performance on Kanye West’s Grammy-winning Jesus Is King album, it’s now cool to not only be Kenny G, but admit you’re a fan of his as well.
