Kenny G was born Kenneth Gorelick on June 5, 1956 in Seattle, Washington. Gorelick began playing saxophone at age 10, learning how to play under the guidance of local trumpeter Gerald Pfister as well as by practicing along with records.
In 1973 at age 17, Gorelick earned a job as a sideman for Barry White’s Love Unlimited Orchestra. While studying accounting at the University of Washington he continued to play saxophone professionally. After college, he played with the funk band Cold, Bold and Together and soon after became a credited member of the Jeff Lorber Fusion. In 1982 Gorelick signed with Arista Records and released his first self-titled album soon after.
While Gorelick saw success in his first five albums, his sixth album Breathless became the number one bestselling instrumental album of all-time, with over 15 million copies sold worldwide. His 1994 holiday albums Miracles: The Holiday Album sold over 13 million copies, making it the most successful holiday album of all time.
