5.0 out of 5 stars Killer Kenny G!!! October 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Kenny G Live" is the first and so far only live album released from the popular saxophonist. Recorded during his successful 1989 tour, "Live" displays Kenny G at his peak riding on the success of his then-previous two studio records, "Duotones" and "Silhouette". While those albums contained some fine music, the live versions displayed on this CD are an entirely different story. Kenny G and his five-piece band stretch the music out into extended improvisations and show off some great musical chops. Mr. G himself performs some excellent virtuoso sax work on "Songbird" and "Silhouette" (which features Kenny holding an A-natural on his soprano sax for nearly 30-seconds in the intro). Kenny's bandmates also show off their versatility especially in Vail Johnson's bass solo in "Midnight Motion" and Robert Damper's extended keyboard solo in "Songbird". Besides having its mellow moments, "Live" also includes some downright funky highlights including the aforementioned "Midnight Motion" as well as "I've Been Missin' You" and "Tribecca" which shows off Kenny's fine playing on the tenor sax as opposed to his usual soprano. Renowned pop singer Michael Bolton makes a guest appearance with a soulful rendition of "Don't Make Me Wait For Love" (originally sung by Lenny Williams on "Duotones") with his gutsy vocals giving the song a harder edge.

Apart from the live material, the album is bookended by two additional studio tracks. Both "Going Home" and "Uncle Al" are in the typical Kenny G ballad style with light melodies and soaring soprano sax work.

While Kenny G has been an assasination target for many critics, there is no denying that "Kenny G Live" contains some brilliant music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of cool stuff on this CD May 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD reveals a new side of Kenny G. We hear solos by other musicians, such as Vail Johnson's killer bass solo on Midnight Motion and Robert Damper's monster keyboard solo on Songbird. My favorite songs on this CD are Tribeca, Sade, and the gospel song Home, as well as Vail's solo on Midnight Motion. If you like this CD, get the DVD, which includes John Raymond's guitar solo in Tribeca and other cool live songs. The only thing I don't like is the inclusion of studio songs, such as Going Home and Uncle Al.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2 for CD, 5 for Midnight Motion December 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I am not a fan of Kenny G, but a friend had the CD on and Midnight Motion started playing. The first part of the song was quite typical of this sort of noise, but then the bass had his solo. Oh mama! One of the great bass solos I have heard. I usually listen to Rush, Zeppelin, and Floyd, so I can truely appreciate good playing. That is why I bought the CD (used) just for the solo. This is also why Midnight Motion gets 5 stars, and the CD 2 (1 for posterity, 1 for being live).

5.0 out of 5 stars Kenny G - Timeless January 27, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Kenny G since 1986 and I will continue to be one until the day that I die. He is amazing in concert. An artist should not be judged solely on the music sold in stores. An artist should truly be judged in his performance. "Kenny G Live" is Kenny G live. If you love Kenny G buy this cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars The only KG you'll ever need April 18, 2003
By Jazzcat
Format:Audio CD
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful concert. The only album from Kenny that in my opinion has a great musical value. This is the only record where he displayed his potentials. He played here funky, jazz and some ballads with great attitude. I just can't stand the turn he imprinted in the last years to his career. Tooooo commercial! You can't play only elevator ballads and think to be considered an honest musician. If he would play more like this I'd buy his records again but this is not happening. This is his only album I really treasure. It's a really nice live album. The band (Vail Johnson !!) is behind words. 4 stars and a half.
Shame on you Kenny!!

5.0 out of 5 stars LIiiiiiiiiiiiiive ! June 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I had that recording on a tape (yes, a tape !). It was given to me by my Saxophone teacher ... I listened to it, and listened to it, but then I switched to a CD player, and couldn't listen to it anymore (who listens to music with a walkman nowadays ???), so I looked and looked but I didn't know what was the name of the CD ... What a pleasure to finally find it ! It's beautiful !!!!!!!!! Especially "Silhouette" ... beautiful ! Enjoy, it's very relaxing !

Having seen Kenny G in concert several times, this CD definitely captured his unique sound. No one plays the bass like Vale Johnson and his solo on track 4 is incredible.
