On the Ed Sullivan Show, Kenny G heard someone performing with a saxophone. It influenced Kenny G to play and practice along with records trying to imitate the sounds that he was hearing. Unfortunately, he failed to join his school’s jazz band at Franklin High School. Kenny G never gave up, in fact, he was accepted during the following year as he tried applying again. As part of Kenny G’s early exposure of his talent, he played for his high school golf team.

Kenneth G started his breakthrough as a musician when he obtained his first professional job as saxophone soloist for Barry White's Love Unlimited Orchestra at the age of 20 during 1976, while studying for a major in accounting at the same time. Kenny G played with the funk band Cold, Bold & Together before becoming a credited member of The Jeff Lorber Fusion. He started his solo career after his period with Lorber.

Arista Records signed Kenny G as a solo artist by 1982, after being heard by the president of the label, at that time Clive Davis. He has released many solo albums and teamed up with various artists including Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton, Natalie Cole, Steve Miller and Aretha Franklin. His own albums are usually classified as smooth jazz as influenced by the likes of Grover Washington, Jr. Kenny G received success quite early on, with both G Force and Gravity, his second and third studio albums respectively, achieving platinum status in the United States. These sales were topped by his fourth studio album, Duotones that shifted over five million copies in the U.S. alone. Kenny G’s fifth studio album, Breathless, became the number one best selling instrumental album ever, with over 15 million copies sold, of which 12 million were in the U.S. He broke another record when his first holiday album, Miracles, sold over 13 million copies, making it the most successful Christmas album to date.

Kenny G was named the 25th-highest selling artist in America by the RIAA, with 48 million albums sold in the USA as of July 31, 2006. In 1994, Kenny G received the Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition for Forever in Love.

Kenny G’s inspiration is his wife, Lyndie Benson. They had two children, Max and Noah. As music runs in the blood, his kids have expressed an interest in saxophone and piano respectively.

Kenny G’s pastime is playing golf. He has participated in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am tournament seven times as of February 7, 2007, and Golf Digest awarded him the position of number one musician golfer in their December rankings of Top 100 in Music.

Kenny G is indeed a successful musician and he proved his worth as a saxophone player. The life of Kenny G is full of peace, passion and music. The works of Kenny G makes anyone listens even though some don’t understand it.
