Editorial Reviews

When the elements of melody and harmony are carefully balanced, the convergence of one world with another results in a beautiful sound.

Namaste is a collaborative album crafted by Rahul Sharma a native of Indias Kashmir region and a third-generation master of the exotic, 100-string santoor and saxophonist Kenny G, a multiple Grammy-winning titan on the contemporary jazz landscape for more than two decades. This unusual and daring project captures the best of these two musicians with a chill ambiance set up by mixer/producer extraordinaire Kid Tricky, (along with Walter A. and Soul Seekerz).

3.0 out of 5 stars This album has fresh idea but fails in general. August 1, 2012
By Manloi
Format:Audio CD
Nameste is an interesting album to begin with.

Although it might not work well, I encourage Kenny G to do more of these.

Why? you might ask.

Before begin my review, I understand that Kenny G wanted to reinvent himself and be creative musically. From his "the making of Classic in the Key of G" in "Live" DVD and interviews, he stated he wanted to do something different, interesting yet original. He understand his fans are getting mature as they grow. In the same time, he still need to please his hardcore fans who love his earlier music. It is very difficult to do both at the same time.

Ever since, my favorite Kenny G's album, "Rhythm and Romance" (Latin flavor) released. Many fans and critics were surprised by the different road he took. It sounded fresh and different yet contain the trace of classic Kenny G's vibe and techniques. All I can say is, I love it. Best of both worlds.

However, the other album, "Heart and Soul" released which targets at classic Kenny G fans does not capture me at all. It suffers similar problems in this album. The reasons are very technical rather than genre and style in my opinion. Besides, I don't really feel connected with the melodies in that album except one or two tracks. In his past albums, they have many great memorable(or emotional) melodies and improvisation/ Cadenza in them which is what Kenny G did best.

Surely, the idea of "Nameste" is very similar to "Rhythm and Romance". More like a follow up album. It sounded interesting at first. But the execution is uninteresting. "Nameste" the album contains several great unique Indian flavor melodies. They are track 1. Nameste, 3. Dance of Elephant God , 4. Lotus Lover and 5. Transcendental Consciousness. But it has too much repetitions in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Namaste February 6, 2014
Format:Audio CD
I am an avid Kenny G fan and has been for many, many years. He has collaborated with various artists, and I feel this collaboration is one of his Top 10 Best. Just listening to the sample songs for this CD sounds magical. The Saxophone and the strings sound glorious. Five stars for Kenny G and Rahul Sharma. Keep those sounds coming.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst CD to date July 23, 2012
By 3xlaa2
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a Kenny G. fan from the very beginning. I've purchased every CD he's ever made along with every collaboration that was not on any of his CDs. This is, bar none, the worst CD he's ever put out. Recently I've gotten into meditation. As part of my practice I listen to "Indian" music. Most of the time, I'm able to relax and separate from myself. With this CD that was not possible. The music can only be described as annoying and counter productive to the relaxation process. I was not able to relax and let go and it was because of the music I was listening that was playing.

Whether you are a true Kenny G. fan and anxiously awaiting his next release or a mediation newbie thinking the combination would go great together (Kenny G. music and relaxation), save your money. Don't spend it on this CD. Too bad I can't return it for a refund.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the Kenny G I was expecting December 29, 2012
By Nancy
Format:Audio CD
I was so excited to receive this CD as a Christmas gift, but was so disappointed in the sound. It is great if you like chanting in another language with a sprinkling of the sax sound. I have several Kenny G albums and was totally expecting the same style and choice of great songs. There is maybe 2 songs that I would listen to again.

3.0 out of 5 stars It Might Be Growing On Me! August 6, 2012
By GMM
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have every Kenny G product ever put out. This one hit me totally by surprise. After listening to it a few times I think it is growing on me. At least I am still playing it. It IS REALLY DIFFERENT for those of you who are KG fans. It has some really new sounds and arrangements. Tell you what--it will expand your musical landscape, all right. GMM

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh, So Odd... July 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Hmm... I love Kenny G's music. He has a grove you can fall into like a fur throw on a cold summer night, while sitting in front of a warm fire with the one you love. But, I'm not feeling him, here. I'm trying to see the point of this? I can't connect to it... I feel disconnected on so many levels. He's excluded many of his loyal masses here, which is odd, because Kenny G's music has always been so universal... I don't like.

2.0 out of 5 stars Namaste
Good title track but I was underwhelmed by the rest of the music. I'm sure it will appeal to Kenny G fans and the title track is getting a lot of air play but not my taste.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoy this collection of songs
The Indian flavor plus Kenny G's superb sax make for a really unique collection. I find myself playing it at home and then taking it in the car.
