1987 Kenny G with Lenny Williams- Don’t Make Me Wait For Love
Kenny Gorelick began playing the saxophone when he turned ten years old. Before he even finished high school, he was already playing professionally in Barry White’s Love Unlimited Orchestra.
In 1982, Kenny signed with Arista Records and began recording solo albums. His first album earned a gold record and his next nine albums earned at least a platinum record (one even earned a diamond record for selling twelve times platinum!)
He used guest singers on some of his songs, and two of his singles reached into the top twenty-five on the R&B chart in 1984 and 1985.
Lenny Williams sang lead vocals for Tower of Power in the early seventies, including the song So Very Hard To Go. He sang vocals on Kenny’s recording of Don’t Make Me Wait For Love. That song became a single in 1986. and peaked at #15 on the Hot 100 and #2 on the Adult Contemporary chart.
Kenny’s next single from that album failed to attract much attention, but his third single from Duotones (Songbird) was an instrumental that peaked at #4 on the Hot 100.
Kenny has continued to be one of the most popular musicians in the world and has played on recordings for a long list of artists. His most surprising appearance in a video is likely to be in the video for the Katy Perry single Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.).
