A Song Called “Going Home” by Kenny G

Kenny G: Best-Selling Artist and a World Record.

I just discovered this song a few minutes ago. I wasn’t looking for music, I wasn’t even on YouTube, but it turned up on an unrelated search and, with a title like “Going Home”, you know I would have to check it out! I did, and I loved it. It’s an instrumental piece.  According to Wikipedia (I confirmed this fact by checking two other websites), Kenny G is the “biggest-selling instrumental musician of the modern era and one of the best-selling artists of all time, with global sales totaling more than 75 million records.”  

Kenny G was entered into the Guinness Book of World Records in 1997 for playing the longest note ever recorded on a saxophone. Apparently, he held an E-flat for 45 minutes and 47 seconds!  How can he hold any note for so long? Circular breathing. I’ll admit, I don’t really know what that means (yet), but it makes more sense than him simply exhaling for that long.

Enjoy this beautiful piece of “smooth jazz”.  I love the tap dancing.
