Kenny G - The Moment (1996, CD)

I take it all back. Every single disparaging remark I ever made about Mr. Gorelick, I take it all back. When my wife came home from a yard sale a few weeks ago with this CD, I was at first outraged. I believed I had shown her the light--taught her better than to buy anything such as this. I thought I had failed.

But in her wisdom, she selected the one disc that would change my mind.

Yes, this is the album that will do it. The album that you must have. From the simple elegance of the title track, to the subtle (but hot!) Latin rhythms of "Havana," to the soaring and wistful elegance of "Always," and to the gut-crunching blues of "Eastside Jam," this is the album that speaks to everyone and anyone--the album that will change how you hear elevator music, and most importantly, the album that will change your life.

I have said enough. Anything more would be a waste of your time. Quit reading this blog and go buy it. Right now. Lock yourself in your room, turn off the phones, put the headphones on and prepare to be changed. I mean it.


  1. April Fool's!

    Whew! That post was tough. The "gut-crunching" line was especially difficult to type without spewing pipe ash everywhere.

    I want everyone to know that I listened to a whole Kenny G album just so I could write this post. Well, most of it anyway. Some of it.

    I hope you people realize the sacrifices I make for you.

  2. Heh heh heh. You got me!

    I was shocked, I tell ya! Shocked!

  3. Dude, I am NOT worthy! No WAY I could have punked somebody like that!

  4. Heh. I thought it was so over-the-top that everyone would know I was kidding right away.
