Product Description

This collection includes tracks from the best selling Christmas album ever Miracles and Kenny's other two holiday recordings Faith and Wishes. Four new tracks, one with Mannheim Steamroller and a bonus cut of 'I'll Be Home For Christmas', a homecoming mix to include holiday greetings from soldiers fighting in Iraq. Arista. 2005.

Amazon.com

Doing what every good merchandiser does when there's no new real product for the Christmas season, Kenny G repackages his best stuff with a few new tracks. The Greatest Holiday Classics boasts pieces from previous holiday records, Wishes (2002), Faith (1999) and Miracles (1997), with five new cuts for a total of 16. To be sure it's a generous offering from the one guy in popular music who just might be contemporary America's Jazzman. Whether playing his acclaimed alto sax or blowing tenor, Kenny's signature tone is nearly unmistakable from anyone else's, perhaps, for his easily accessible phrasing and the limited improvisation he's willing to put on record. His focus has always been on delivering the song, rather than the possibilities for innovation, exploration and enhanced creativity that more adventurous players readily welcome in the jazz setting with any tune. One of the new pieces, a big band treatment of "Jingle Bell Rock" joyfully swings under Randy Waldman's arrangement and fellow his horn men seem to push G on his solo, while the other new works "My Favorite Things" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas" are fairly predictable fare. Even "Jingle Bells" is reduced to a slow tempo, with KG's trademark moody, saccharine strings and piano in the mix. But then, this is exactly the kind of Christmas tea many want against the often-overwhelming din of the holiday rush. Martin Keller

If you don't have any of the 3 cdes that Kenny G has put out for Christmas before this is the one to get. There are four additional songs that aren't on the other 3 cds it's a great compiliation of his previous work and adding of new songs. He's great to listen to at Christmas time.

If you own the first three Holiday albums, don't waste your money for 4 new songs. Every year I look forward to holiday music and Kenny G is on the top of my list when it comes to checking for new music. This year was quite a disappointment. If you want any of these new songs, I would suggest itunes.

This is the type of album that relaxes you during the hectic holiday season. Sure, Kenny G is definitely not the best jazz musician (heck, I don't think we can even call him a jazz musician) but a Christmas album such as this one does not require such innovative improvisation. This album just draws out some sweet substance and really creates a comforting feeling.

If you are looking for something creative, don't approach this album. If, however, you are looking for soothing Christmas album, then this is a good choice. If you don't have Kenny G's old Christmas albums, then give this a try. It's fair enough.

Kenny G's music is perfect background for all the holiday chores!
Whether in the house, or in the car, he rocks my Holidays.
Thanks Mr. G!

Kenny G is amazing, and it's great to have his greatest holiday classics all on one album.

My teenage son gave me this CD for Christmas, because he knew I liked Kenny G and did not have any of his holiday CDs. The CD is sort of a "greatest hits" collection, with selections from his other holiday CDs. Those who already own one or more of Kenny's other holiday CDs may not be as interested in this CD as someone like me who doesn't.

It is a lovely collection of holiday music...mostly Christmas, but it does include one Chanukah piece. I have enjoyed all the music very much, but I especially like "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas", "Miracles", "We Three Kings/Carol of the Bells", "The Chanukah Song" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas". I've listened to the CD many times and look forward to many years of enjoyment.

Just as all of Kenny's albums are excellent, this one is too. If you love amazing talent, saxophone and music in general, you will love this. Just wonderful.
