Appreciated as both a musician and performer by millions, George Benson has always had the dual role of expert improviser and vibrant entertainer. He has consistently placed his keenly discerning art in the service of a rousing good time. Rounding out his singular approach with sly, seductive rhythm and blues, he’s earned himself an impeccable reputation as one of music’s most enterprising and engaging stars. George has earned GRAMMY Awards for the following work: This Masquerade – Record of the Year (1976), Breezin’ – Best Pop Instrumental Performance (1976), Theme from Good King Bad – Best Rhythm & Blues Instrumental Performance (1976), On Broadway – Best R&B Vocal Performance, Male (1978), Give Me The Night – Best R& B Vocal Performance, Male (1980), Off Broadway – Best R&B Instrumental Performance (1980), Moody’s Mood – Best Jazz Vocal Performance (1980), Being With You – Best Pop Instrumental Performance (1983), Mornin’ – Best Pop Instrumental Performance, George Benson & Al Jarreau (track from “Givin’ It Up) (2007), God Bless the Child – Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance and George Benson & Al Jarreau (featuring Jill Scott) (track from “Givin’ It Up) (2007).

In a recording career that spans almost three decades and 23 albums, Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Kenny G has grafted elements of R&B, pop and Latin to a jazz foundation solidifying his reputation as the premiere artist in contemporary jazz. Since the early 80s, his combination of unparalleled instrumental chops and indelible melodies has resulted in sales of more than 75 million records worldwide (45 million in the US alone) and more than a dozen climbs to the top of Billboards contemporary jazz chart. Kenny G has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business during his legendary career, ranging from Michael Bolton to Weezer to Whitney Houston to Katy Perry. On Jan. 27, Grammy award-winning saxophonist Kenny G released 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.
