I sure do love the music of Kenny G and miss seeing and hearing him. What's new with him?
—Rita Hooker, Springfield, Mo.

The popular sax man, 52, performs about 75 dates each year and recently released a Latin-music CD, Rhythm and Romance. Born Kenny Gorelick in Seattle, he didn't start out with intentions to make music his career. "I loved the saxophone, and somewhere in the middle of high school, I started getting good," says Kenny, whose dad initially wanted him to follow him into the plumbing business. A lot of music lovers should be glad he stuck with the horn instead of a pipe wrench! The married father of two sons lives in Los Angeles, where he oversees his own line of G-Series saxophones.
