Top off the old cliché of roses, chocolates and heart-shaped candies with the sexy, smooth sounds of saxophone sensation Kenny G, as he makes his debut with Pacific Symphony for a romantic holiday program this Valentine's Day. With a recording career that spans almost three decades and 23 albums, the Grammy Award-winning saxophonist has sold more than 75 million records worldwide (45 million in the U.S. alone) and enjoyed more than a dozen climbs to the top of Billboard's contemporary jazz chart.
Grafting R&B, pop and Latin to a jazz foundation, he has solidified his reputation as the premier
artist in contemporary jazz. Kenny G performs hits from his newest records, "Namaste" a "Heart and Soul," and plays notable favorites such as "Songbird," "Silhouette," "Baby G, "Midnight Motion" and "The Moment," all backed by the lush sounds of the full symphony orchestra, led by Principal Pops Conductor Richard Kaufman.
This special Valentine's Day weekend celebration takes place Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 14-16, at 8 p.m. in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. Tickets are $35-$185; for more information or to purchase tickets, call (714) 755-5799 or visit www.PacificSymphony.org.
