"I'm just doing my own thing, too."
"It's tough to be a music educator because you need to be extremely flexible. There are different answers for everyone."
"The way that I improvise is just my style and it should be my style... to me that's the whole point of playing music."Kenneth Bruce Gorelick (born June 5, 1956), better known by his stage name Kenny G, is an American, adult contemporary and smooth jazz saxophonist.
