World-renowned and Grammy-Award winning saxophonist Kenny G, released his first new album in six-years titled New Standards through Concord Records (with 2-LP set for release on February 11, 2022).
Already topping multiple Amazon charts, the 11-track collection of original compositions takes inspiration from the Jazz Ballads of the 1950s and 60s.
“For my new album, I wanted to capture the sound, the vibe, the romance, and the sophistication of the Jazz Ballads (Standards) of the 50s and 60s, but do it ‘my way’ with my own new original compositions and melodies,” says Kenny. “I’m very proud of these ‘New Standards.”
Kenny is currently on the road with his “The Miracles Holiday & Hits Tour 2021,” in support of New Standards.
Promising to bring Kenny’s signature brand of jazz to the live stage with a night filled with festive spirit and contemporary classics, the three-week trek is scheduled to hit a number of major US markets including, Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, and Boston. Kenny’s tour schedule will continue well into 2022, with shows already on sale as far out as July. For further information on the tour dates see Kenny’s website.
