He will be performing some of his greatest hits plus he will be joined on stage by the opening act, South Africa’s very own jazz master, Selaelo Selota.
Presented by Canoc Productions in association with Mzansi Magic Music and 702, fans of these two jazz icons have the opportunity to experience the incredible talents of two of the world’s finest musicians at one memorable concert.
Just two months after his South African concert, Kenny G will release his fourteenth studio album, Brazilian Nights, set for release on January 27, 2015 through Concord Records.
“I’ve been in love with bossa nova my whole life,” says the saxophonist in the album’s liner notes. “I think the first song that won me over was Cannonball Adderley’s version of ‘Quiet Nights’.
And more recently I’ve been listening (non-stop!) to Stan Getz’s album called Getz For Lovers. I think I’ve listened to that record almost every day for the past 5 years and it really was the inspiration in making this album. My goal was not only to make a bossa nova album that pays tribute to the ‘Masters’ who I’ve been listening to (Cannonball Adderley, Paul Desmond and Stan Getz) but also to write and record original bossa novas that I hope can hold their own in this distinguished company. I humbly say that I feel we’ve succeeded.”
Kenny G has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business during his legendary career, ranging from Michael Bolton to Weezer to Whitney Houston.
He recently worked with pop superstar Katy Perry on her single ‘Last Friday Night’.
