His first new album in 6 years, New Standards features 11 original compositions inspired by the Jazz Ballads of the 50’s and 60’s. These new ‘standards’ capture the sophistication, style and romance of this amazing time period in Jazz, and combine it with Kenny G’s signature sound.

Kenny G is an award-winning saxophonist, the biggest selling instrumental musician of the modern era, and one of the best-selling artists of all time. With global sales totaling more than 75-million records and 1.5 billion streams, the jazz icon has accumulated a staggering 24-award nominations throughout his almost 50-year career and has taken home a Grammy Award, American Music Award, NAACP Award, and two Soul Train Music Awards.

HBO will release the documentary LISTENING TO KENNY G in early December as part of the Music Box series created by Bill Simmons.

“For this album, I wanted to try to recreate those ‘sounds’ but do it my own way, which for me meant that I would have to compose the songs myself. So I set out to compose and perform songs that capture the ‘heart and soul’ of those beloved Jazz Standards and to record them “my way”. It was a wonderful (and painstaking) labor of love and I’m super proud of the end result.” - Kenny G
