Everyone knows that Kurt Cobain and Eddie Vedder came from the Seattle, Washington area, but I bet you did not know that the American saxophonist, Kenny G also hails from the Pacific Northwest. You may be surprised to learn that Kenny G is one of the highest selling artists of all time, having sold over 75 million records worldwide. While he mainly is known for his Soprano saxophone playing, he also plays both the alto and tenor sax as well. His fourth album, Duotones, is when the instrumental artist break through the mainstream, essentially single-handedly keeping his record label, Arista, afloat for many years. The legendary record executive, Clive Davis, was the one who discovered the artist. He has since collaborated with many famous musicians including Steve Miller, Weezer, Frank Sinatra, Smokey Robinson, Aretha Franklin and Katy Perry, adding his particular flavor of smooth jazz to other artists' sounds.
