At Last... The Duets Album

( 3 )

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
When Kenny G decided to record a duets album, he knew the right people to call. At Last finds the saxophone superstar paired with vocal giants ranging from Barbra Streisand, Gladys Knight, and Chaka Khan to pop stars including LeAnn Rimes, Daryl Hall, Richard Marx, and Earth, Wind and Fire. Instrumental heavyweights pitch in also: trumpeter Arturo Sandoval, saxophonist David Sanborn, pianist David Benoit, and the legendary composer Burt Bacharach. The G man sounds stoked by the A-list company; his soprano and tenor saxophone work is as soaring, lusty, and affecting as it was when he first broke into the big leagues nearly 20 years ago. Reinterpreting classic pop hits ...

The G man sounds stoked by the A-list company; his soprano and tenor saxophone work is as soaring, lusty, and affecting as it was when he first broke into the big leagues nearly 20 years ago. Reinterpreting classic pop hits puts the leader and his guests on familiar ground; everyone sounds both comfortable and inspired. For ultimate proof of this synergy turn to the album’s final performance, “The Music That Makes Me Dance,” featuring Streisand. The diva -- in magnificent voice -- and the obviously delighted saxman conspire to make beautiful music together.
All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Smooth jazz icon saxophonist Kenny G delivers his first all-guest-star album with At Last...The Duets Album. Featuring a coterie of big-name artists from the pop music world, including Barbra Streisand, Burt Bacharach, LeAnn Rimes, and others, At Last essentially maximizes the vocal crossover aesthetic prominent on many of G's prior albums. The formula largely works, coming off as a breezy, laid-back concert with G adding soft asides to his guest's vocal performances. To these ends, Brian McKnight reinvigorates "Careless Whisper" with a quiet storm intensity; Chaka Khan actually betters Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful," suffusing it with an infectious gospel/soul vibe; and Earth, Wind & Fire pull a "no brainer" on OutKast's "The Way You Move." Add to this a fairly organic production style that mixes in lush orchestral arrangements, funky organs, and real percussion as well as artists who seem to really enjoy themselves, and you've got one of Kenny G's most pleasing efforts...At Last.

    One Very Successful and Talented Artist

    The fact being that I LOVE Kenny G. has prompted me to immediately search for this new Duets CD. After reviewing songs from the Barnes & Noble site, no hesitation was made. His music takes me far away!!!
