"The best-selling instrumentalist in the world, with over 70 million albums sold to date, Kenny G. is an international superstar who has earned countless prestigious awards throughout an illustrious career that spans three decades. He has distinguished himself as a master craftsman and one of the most gifted artists in the world, through nineteen best-selling releases. Now add one more to that list of multiple-platinum chart-topping records: Nothing Special. Kenny's first album in at least 10 weeks finds the multi-talented artist and WFMU DJ once again effortlessly bridging the genres of pop, psychodrama and the avant garde with his distinctive and instantly recognizable style. From the languid beauty of 'Close To Me' to festive rhythmic flavor of 'Counting Time', Kenny demonstrates why his music has had such an enduring and memorable effect. The simply almost-classical sound of 'Too Far' contrasts with very limited edition bonus track 'Anal Magic,' a so-funky jam with a decidedly 'cut-up' feel that features many off key musicians. Keeping the groove moving, People Like Us offers 'Wake Up', another perky slice of avant-flavored edgy jazz; while the intoxicating 'Give Up It's Mine' conjures up visions of horror with no consolation."
