Internationally celebrated recording artist Kenny G
will release his first newly recorded all-instrumental album of popular material in more than four years, when “I'm In The Mood For Love ... The Most Romantic Melodies Of All Time” arrives in stores on November 14th.
Following his heart, the world's most renowned soprano saxophone stylist lends his instrumental craft, for the first time, to an entire program of romantic songs featuring several of today's most recent chart hits: "If I Ain't Got You" (Alicia Keys
), "You're Beautiful" (James Blunt
), and "You Raise Me Up" (Josh Groban
Kenny's choices also pay homage to the great 20th century American Songbook, from "The Way You Look Tonight" and "I'm In The Mood For Love" (both extolling the pen of songwriter Dorothy Fields), to Bread's
"If" and Barbra Streisand's
"The Way We Were."
The movies provide three highlights: Nino Rota's "Love Theme from Romeo & Juliet," Johnny Mandel's "The Shadow of Your Smile" (Love Theme from The Sandpiper
), and "As Time Goes By" (from Casablanca
). And no collection of love songs would be complete without the Beatles'
"Yesterday." Also included is a spirited medley and tribute to Sinatra's
"Fly Me To The Moon and "You Make Me Feel So Young."
