Kenny G is releasing his 14th studio album. ‘==Brazilian Nights==’ is a tribute to bossa nova – a blend of samba and jazz, which is very popular in the South American country his album is named after.
“Bossa nova was something that I knew I wanted to work,” said the American musician. “Because I really like the way bossa nova sounds. I like the way those old jazz masters were playing certain licks, certain runs, certain chord changes. And I really like the way that sax sounds through that. So I thought, OK, I want to challenge myself to get this down.”
