Kenny G to host his own show at KKJZ-FM

March 30, 2011 |  4:10 pm

Large.r6710t368q2n Grammy-winning saxophonist Kenny G is adding a new job to his resume: radio host.

Starting Sunday, the musician will be heard for two hours each week on KKJZ-FM (88.1), better known to its fans as K-Jazz. The program will be called "C to C With Kenny G," which the station explained stands for "Classic to Contemporary," meaning he'll be playing music "ranging from Dave Brubeck and Wes Montgomery to Esperanza Spalding and Chris Botti."

"I love jazz and grew up listening to all the great masters of jazz as well as the more contemporary instrumentalists," the 54-year-old sax man said in a statement released by KKJZ. "My new program will draw from jazz-oriented music recorded throughout my lifetime."

Kenny G (real name Kenneth Gorelick) has sold more than 75 million records since the release of his first album in 1982. His hit CDs include "Duotones," "Breathless" and "Miracles."

"C to C" will air Sundays from 7 to 9 p.m.
