The title of the CD is Rhythm & Romance and the music that plays is exactly that. From the first catchy notes of Sax-o-loco to the last notes of Salsa Kenny, the music does not let you go until it's over. But by then, you can't wait to start over again. All the selections are outstanding but there are personal favorites. The stand out selections for me are Cope de Amor, Sabor A Mi, Besame Mucho, Brasilia, Sax-o-loco and of course, Ritmo y Romance. I could listen to these selections over and over again which I have done since I downloaded the CD from Amazon MP3 downloads.

I am glad that Kenny left Arista for Starbucks entertainment so he could follow his dream of making the kind of music that he wants to record instead of being told what to record. He has more freedom in writing music that sounds good and it shows how much he has grown musically over the years.

For those interested in listening to similar genre of music from Kenny G, I would recommend buying/listening to Classics in the Key of G. It's not widely available but it's an outstanding CD that has a collection of jazz classics that influenced him during his younger days as a learning musician.

Lastly, I've been listening to Kenny G since his days as guest soloist in an instrumental titled "She likes to Watch" from the Rippingtons Moonlighting CD in the early 80's. He is a great musician who has managed to stay in the realm of quality jazz music all through the years. I'm looking forward to more beautiful music from him.

Just got this CD today and even on the first spin around I fell in love. It is so great to have a Kenny G album with original music instead of covers or a greatest hits album. This album is wonderful...my toddler and I danced to most of these songs in the kitchen for most of the day. THanks for another great CD Kenny!!! Janis

I bought this CD after going to see Kenny G at a concert he gave here in Guadalajara, so I had heard the music already and was delighted by it. But sometimes artists improvise and even go away from the versions on their CDs. As expected, I was not disappointed. I enjoyed it from beginning to end and recommended to all my friends because, since they hadn't gone to see him perform (ha-ha!) they would be able to listen to this wonderful album. I didn't know all the songs but enjoyed them all because they are great. Bésame mucho is a song that I know since I was little and have heard it sung by many artists before; well, Kenny G managed to aced it and I felt so good I sung it out loud, even in front of my children, that seemed amused by their enthusiastic mother. I strongly recommend this CD, if not because you like this kind of music, because you love jazz and Kenny's sax. I guarantee you that you'll feel like these talented musicians are playing just for you!

Excellent new album from Kenny G. Fresh light jazz with a Latin theme.
New material and new label with good audio engineering.

Rhythm and Romance is pretty inventive, and it melds that soprano sax with Latin music very well. I have always been a fan, but I didn't listen to his CDs for awhile until I went to his 3/14/08 concert. In short, the guy can play mean jazz on that sax. He knows that people make fun of his stuff, so he makes sure that you know he is good by playing next to you in the aisle, and in the balcony as well. The guy is THAT good. Make sure you see him during 2008's tour for Rhythm & Romance. I saw David Sanborn last year & he played for 30 minutes, took a break, and played for another 30 minutes. I know Sanborn is a serious jazz king on his type of saxophone, but when people pay money to see ya, you should be playing for 2 hours straight (like Kenny G).

First let me say how much I despise Kenny G...his music puts me to sleep...blah and sappy come to mind when I think of his music. HOWEVER, I heard a great Latin sax song on the radio the other day in my car and sat in the parking lot waiting to hear the title of the song and the artist. When she announced it was a new Kenny G album you could have knocked me over w/a feather! No way!! It's hard to sit still listening to this album! I want to rhumba, tango or salsa...there's no way this is Kenny G!! He also goes off into jazzland w/this but always w/that Latin beat behind him. If he stays on this track he'll lose some fans but I'll bet he gains more than he loses!!! BRAVO!!
