but we could be surprised
No idea. I found it on youtube, thought it'd be easy - and came short, no real idea. Struck me that it'd be a good test for the Kenny G knockers on here, like me. And made me think a lot.- The question begs asking - Do you actually know the correct answer?
Strangely that didn't occur to me!we need someone with song recognition software!
This is scary! It means there is someone that recorded number 4 in KG's style!The correct answer is #3!
Is that a bootleg by the way?
The reason I know this is because I listened to everything by Kenny back in the day when I got started on the sax. He's probably easier to spot when he plays the soprano for most people as that sound is very.... well Kenny.
When I nominted the above players I didn't realise the poster of the original video had a selection of a total of 13 players to choose from including Tom Scott...one thing I'm pretty certain of is Tom Scott is not among them. The first player employs certain devices and techniques that Sax Gordon uses...I think I agree with Spike on this - there is a few possibilities -
I don't think Ernie Watts is among them because he's got a pretty distinctiveness tonal quality...
Kirk Whalum played tenor and soprano with Bob James in the 1980s...one possibility
Sam Riney is another player to consider - played in a L.A. fusion band called Kittyhawk - Richard Elliott was a member at one time, Boney James could be...Gary Meek played with the Jeff Lorber Group like Mr. Gorelick...Brandon Fields with the Rippington tended to play alto alot - the problem which one is which?
P.S. After a bit of a think... #1 Sax Gordon? #3 Kenny G? #6 Jimmy Z (Zavala)?
