He plays tenor saxophone and writes songs about his experiences as a young black man in America. His music is influenced by African American musicians such as Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, and James Pugh.
He started playing the sax at the age of 13 when he received a used alto saxophone as a gift. At that time he didn't know how to play it yet, but he liked the sound of it. Later he bought himself a tenor sax and began taking lessons from a professional musician. In 2004 he released his first album titled "Come Tomorrow". Since then he has been working on new material and will release another album later this year or in 2020.

There are three main types of saxophones: alto, tenor, and baritone. The name comes from the French word "sextant," which means "sixth instrument." In the early 20th century, when jazz musicians started using saxophones, they were originally made from wood, just like flutes and clarinets. Later, metal versions were produced to replace the wooden ones. Today, all saxophones are made from metal.
Kenny G plays an E-III tenor saxophone. It is similar to the E-II except for the color of the plastic covering on the body of the saxophone. The original model was dark blue, but later a light blue version was released onto the market. You can tell which series the saxophone belongs to by looking at the logo on the side of the bell.
Kenny G's manager, Steve Loria, told me that his favorite saxophonist is Charlie Parker.

Kenny's saxophone is a Selmer Mark VI. Along with this lovely rig, he also plays alto and tenor saxophones! One of Kenny G's saxophones is from his high school, which is an incredible tidbit about his gear. He practices with it on a daily basis. The other one he uses in the studio is a custom-made alto by Joe Lovano.
Kenny G has said a few times that he prefers the sound of an alto over a tenor, so it makes sense that Joe Lovano would build him one. Lovano has also played on many of Kenny G's albums, so they are good friends who collaborate well together.
In addition to his saxophones, Kenny G also plays clarinet, bassoon, and piano. He has said in interviews that he tries different instruments every night when he performs so there will be no repeat songs or tunes. This shows how much work he puts into his music and his performance skills.
Kenny G started playing sax at the age of 11, and now works as its main player. He has won several awards throughout his career, including two Grammy Awards, three World Music Awards, and a Diamond Award from Japan's RIAJ. In 1990, he became the first jazz artist to win the MTV Video Music Award for Best Male Vocalist.
