Kenny G (On leaving Arista Records): I was with Arista forever, and Clive (Davis, record producer) was like family to me. But I wanted to do an album of original material, and that wasn't what they wanted me to do. I personally wanted to get back to my roots, and explore creative things. Also, I think people are tired of cover records and they are hungry for original music.
Kenny G: I love the way the saxophone feels with a Latin rhythm, and I felt maybe I can do something like that, but of course do my thing and have it sound different than anything else. You've got to continually try to reinvent yourself.
Kenny G (If he would ever fight with Josh Groban over best-selling Christmas records): Well, Josh and I performed together at a dinner party awhile back, and he actually lives pretty close to me. He's a great guy, and I wouldn't want to fight him. I'm happy for his success, and I'd love to do more music with him.
Kenny G: People can tell when somebody's doing something from their heart or whether they're doing it from their brain. Fortunately for me, I sleep well at night because I know that I've always played the best that I can...and a lot of people seem to like what I do.
Kenny G: Everyone loves the rhythm of Latin music. It makes you feel good; it makes you want to dance. At the same time, it is very intimate and personal.
Kenny G (On his 2008 album Rhythm & Romance): Musically, this is nothing like I have ever done before.
