You Probably Wouldn't Be Here If It Weren't for Kenny G

Posted by on Thu, Jan 24, 2013 at 12:45 PM

(Jazz Alley) Attention, whippersnappers who think Kenny G's name is nothing but a smooth-jazz punch line: Show some fucking respect. If you are a white person who was born between 1986 and 1989, there's an 85 percent chance you were conceived to a soundtrack of Kenneth Bruce Gorelick's breakthrough Duotones. (If you are a nonwhite person who was born between 1986 and 1989, the same holds true for Anita Baker's Rapture.) So the next time you're tempted to mock Kenny G's music or hair or inability to take a joke, remember: You probably wouldn't be here if the margarine tones of Kenny G hadn't inspired your dad to cram his sax in your mom's gorelick.

going all the way back to Cold Bold and Together, Kenny G becomes the Father of our generation. Mind: blown.
