5.0 out of 5 stars Puts you in the mood March 5, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pass the Chips and Salsa March 1, 2008
Format:Audio CD
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

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS is Kenny G??? February 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Musical Latin Journey Around the World February 9, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Kenny G has become synonymous with the alto saxophone. For many years he has entertained us with his sexy, sometimes mystical sound. A song that immediately comes to mind that embodies his overall sound, is Songbird, from many years ago.

Kenny's latest album Rhythm and Romance contains a very juicy Latin flavor that leaves you wanting to dance around the room like Salma Hayek in Fools Rush In. The sound is relaxing at times and energizing at others. On many tracks, Kenny G pairs himself with Spanish vocals, which add to the rich sound this album has so wonderfully captured. Rhythm and Romance would be a wonderful addition to any upcoming spring or summer party- surely adding that ambiance people enjoy.

Listen to the tracks on Amazon, and hear for yourself how hypnotizing this album is. I've found myself wanting to listen to it over and over again. Tracks range in length from Just over 3 minutes to a whopping 7 minutes in length. The best thing about this album is that there is no particular tempo or melody that makes this album generic or repetitive. He has a range of latin style- fast, slow, instrumental, vocal- you've got it all here.

So whether it's your first time hearing Kenny G, or your hundredth, this album will not disappoint. Grab it for your collection, and celebrate this great cultural achievement that Kenny has made.

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).
