New Brunswick, NJ ( November 20, 2012)—State Theatre and AM Productions present Grammy® Award-winner Kenny G in his 2012 Holiday Show on Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 8pm. Tickets range from $35-95.
Kenny G lights up the season with holiday classics such as “Silver Bells,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Let it Snow,” “Joy to the World,” “Silent Night,” and more.
Saxophonist Kenny G is the premier artist in contemporary jazz. Kenny G’s music features aspects of R&B, pop, and Latin that are blended into a jazz foundation. Over the past three decades he has produced 23 albums, which have resulted in sales of more than 75 million records worldwide.
Kenny G grew up in Seattle, where the popular R&B of the early to mid-1970s inspired him both musically and culturally. He was first influenced by the R&B of the early and mid-1970’s. Kenny started performing in his teens, landing his first gig with Barry White and his Love Unlimited Orchestra at the Paramount Northwest Theater (now the Paramount Theater) in 1973. Since then, Kenny has collaborated with some of music’s most iconic figures such as Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Natalie Cole, and Frank Sinatra.
Kenny launched his solo career in 1982, quickly producing three critically acclaimed jazz albums–Kenny G (1982), G-Force (1983), andGravity (1985). His subsequent studio albums, Silhouette (1988) and Breathless (1992), were also hugely successful. His 1992 albumBreathless resulted in the Grammy® winning single “Forever in Love.”
Kenny’s holiday albums have also produced great success for him throughout his career. His holiday album Miracles (1994) was the first album that carried him to the top of the Billboard chart for the first time and has also become the best-selling holiday album of all time.
Heart and Soul, Kenny’s latest recording released in June 2010, captures the spirit of R&B that inspired him as a boy and remains true to his roots and vision. In some respects, Heart and Soul can be seen as a culmination of everything that has come before it–Kenny’s past infused with his future.
This concert is underwritten by Sherard and Naomi Murphy.
