Album: Kenny G & G Force - Gravity (1985) Song: Love on the Rise
I feel like I need to set the record straight. My whole life I grew up believing that Kenny G was the ultimate punchline. A musician who's adult contemporary music was the butt of all jokes, and clearly something only deranged sophisticates would endorse.
On a whim, I decided to check out his albums from the early to mid 80s, and to my absolute delight, these albums are phenomenal! Not afraid to drench a track in synth bass, and guest with 80s vocalists and players for maximum impact. Turns out, Kenny G was a synthy funkamaniac, and actually had some pretty edgy energy.
