ISINA Live
Kenny G Rocks Milwaukee!
by ISINA

Kenny appeared in Milwaukee and gave the audience a performance they would never forget. He treated the audience to romance-inspired tunes, including “Songbird,” “Forever in Love” and “The Moment,” along with Latin and funk numbers. The saxophonist also paid tribute to his jazz influences with covers of Stan Getz’s 1962 bossa nova hit Desafinado (composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim), John Coltrane’s lush 1959 ballad, “Naima,” and The Average White Band’s 1974 funk-disco jam “Pick Up the Pieces,” rounding off his set with a cover of Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” immortalized in the 1997 film Titanic. “We wanted to say how excited we are, on a Thursday night, to play a show in Milwaukee,” he said to the ethnically diverse, mostly middle-aged audience. The show was not sold out, but the musician drew a healthy crowd for a Thursday night. “Thanks for having us back. This is awesome!” Kenny G engaged in banter with the audience at several points in the show, persuading them to have “more sax” (“I have sax all the time,” he quipped), and joking that if his hairline went the way of his bald guitar player’s, “My career would go straight to the toilet, like Michael Bolton’s.” Kenny is a mentor at Isina and we always love to hear where his new accomplishments take him!
