If you want to play the saxophone music of what has been included in the CD of <<Great Hits>> of Kenny G, this book would be useless! Finally I found that this was not a Saxophone Music Sheet, - only a music sheetbook of accompaniment instrument. But before you buy it you cannot see the details highlighted and I received twice the same book without knowing that there was not any saxophone solo music of Kenny G in the book as the other ordering of the similar book.
This songbook was written for Piano/Vocal/Guitar. The piano transcriptions are done really well. Bb saxophone and trumpet players will have to transpose up a tone (a whole step) to play in the same key as Kenny G. It would have been nice if this book came with a Bb pullout section. I recommend the "Kenny G - Breathless" songbook along with the CD of the same name. Also at the top of my list is "Kenny G - the Moment" and the CD of the same name. If you're into standards, I recommend "Kenny G - Classics in the Key of G" and the CD of the same name (most of the songs are actually in the key of G if you're playing Bb sax - concert pitch is mostly F). All these songbooks include score (sometimes with piano) and also include a special pullout section for Bb instruments. A couple of songs are transcribed to Eb for alto saxophone instead of Bb. A songbook worth mentioning is "The Best of Kenny G". It also comes with a special pullout section for Bb instruments. Unless you're already familar with the songs from "The Best of Kenny G", you need to purchase the "Kenny G - Greatest Hits", "Silhouette", "Duotones", "G-Force", and "Gravity" CDs to listen to the tunes.

This is the most emotionless, inane, shallow music ever recorded. Anyone who wants to play this music needs his head examined. However, if one wants to play this music and can't figure it out by ear, given 5 minutes of listening time, isn't going to be the kind of person that has persevered to learn to read music.
What a joke. The guy couldn't hold his own in the jazz world, so he jumped on a new, faceless sub-genre that tags along on the coat tails of jazz. You'd think that with all the money he's made from the uneducated masses, he could afford some time to practice his instrument, if nothing else but to learn to play in tune.
