This reviewer is guilty of a hideous crime. I will admit that I am a huge fan of Classic Rock, Progressive Rock and Electronic Music. However, I'm about to reveal a dark secret-I am a huge Kenny G fan too!! Since the release of his breakthrough 1986 album "Duotones", I've bought every album he has released and have been following his career ever since.
The recently released compilation "Ultimate Kenny G" truly lives up to its title. Basically, it's an updated version of the 1997 "Greatest Hits" CD only with a stronger song selection. His trademark ballads "Songbird", "Silhouette", "Forever in Love" and "The Moment" are all included here as well as tracks from his last studio album "Paradise" and his 1999 tribute to the standards "Classics in the Key of G".
Also included are three rare tracks including the brand new song "Everlasting" plus "Jasmine Flower" which had only been previously available on the Japanese version of "The Moment" and his version of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" which had only been available as a free giveaway single with the initial pressings of the "Greatest Hits" CD.
To top things off, no Kenny G collection would be ultimate without his trademark duets. Included in this collection are his pop duets "By The Time This Night Is Over" with Peabo Bryson, "We've Saved The Best For Last" with Smokey Robinson, "One More Time" with Chante Moore and his take on Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World" complete with Armstrong's original vocal track.
Truly, this is The Ultimate Kenny G. So what if his music is lightweight. If people didn't like it, he wouldn't be selling millions of records. His music has found a special place in many lives including this reviewer. Whether you're a closet Kenny G fan or an outspoken diehard, "The Ultimate Kenny G" is the most complete definitive up-to-date collection by this brilliant saxophonist and king of background noise.

As a musician, I might not always agree with his musical decisions, but I cannot deny this is an incredibly talented musician who worked for and deserves all the success he has attained. As a music fan with a fairly expansive musical taste and awareness of historic and cultural musical traditions, I believe there is much to be enjoyed in his music. I do feel bad whenever some people choose to summarily dismiss his music without taking the time to listen, to understand, and to appreciate just how much energy, creativity, determination, and joy he brings to almost every song. It really is something to listen for. When he gets it right, which is more often than not, the result can be moving and amazing if you remain open-minded and allow it to move and amaze you.

If a musician doesn't play music for an audience what is the purpose in ever coming out of practice. Why don't musicians continually only play for themselves in solitary hours, days, month, years of practice? Why? Because they want to be heard and appreciated for what they can do; they want to please the crowd. If a 6 year old girl can please a crowd with her fairly on note and rhythm rendition of "Papa Was A Rolling Stone," and please the crowd just as good as an old virtuoso violinist playing "Concert Fantasy on 'Carmen'" who is better at what the musician's purpose is? In fact, more pleasure may come from the 6 year old because the crowd can recognize how difficult or unusual it is for a 6 year old to sing like that than some 'old dude' doing something on a violin when they don't have a clue how hard whatever is considered difficult on a violin is. Anyway, Kenny G pleases the crowd, whether holding long notes or doing crazy runs that sound difficult (SOUND DIFFICULT, not necessarily are difficult, he plays for laymen crowd) Kenny G pleases the crowd and he is rewarded for it by having a bigger crowd because most people are laymen. Mix the hard sounding stuff with smooth, cool, pretty sounding stuff and you have a number 1 crowd pleaser. Doing this stuff on top of a great like Louis Armstrong, if you haven't heard listen to Kenny G's "Classics in the Key of G," was this out of line? How many do this sort of thing in practice; emulating your musical mentor? I guess Kenny extended his love of practice to the recording studio and know the live stage to DVD. The DVD or the Classics albums were not the smartest thing to do in the eyes of some, but novel and the crowds love them.Read more ›

I have several Kenny G cd's (as well as albums) and this cd is a wonderful tribute and compliment to all his previous work. Definately worth every penny!

The CD features most of Kenny G's hits and provides soothing music for a hectic commute. I read some of the negative comments and all I can say is, "If you dislike Kenny G's style, why did you buy it?" The CD is great for Kenny G fans and is a good buy.

This is a great cd. If you enjoy instrumental music, you will love this. I listen to it at work to lessen my stress level. Anyone who doesn't like this CD probably dors not appreciate the time invested to become a talented musician.
