'Brazilian Nights' is Available for Purchase on Amazon, iTunes & KennyG.com

Los Angeles, CA (January 29, 2015) – Anticipation was high going into his album release week so Grammy award-winning saxophonist, Kenny G wasn't about to let the treacherous weather conditions stop him from making a plethora of key NYC media appearances in support of his fourteenth studio album Brazilian Nights via Concord Records. The ten-song set, Kenny’s tribute to the ‘masters’ of Bossa Nova, is a mixture of classics and Kenny G originals. Despite multiple diversions, cancellations and delays, Kenny finally made it to NYC on Tuesday afternoon, just before all road travel shut down enabling interviews and performances on the TODAY Show, Bloomberg, HuffPost Live and MSNBC’s Morning Joe, among others. Brazilian Nights is available on Amazon and iTunes and exclusive deluxe bundles can be found at KennyG.com.

“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.”
