Check out the trailer for HBO's new documentary, Listening to Kenny G. It debuts on Thursday, December 2 at 8 p.m. Directed by Penny Lane, Listening to Kenny G takes a humorous but incisive look at the best-selling instrumentalist of all time - and quite possibly one of the most famous living musicians. The fourth installment in the Music Box series, the film investigates the artist born Kenny Gorelick - who took the pop charts by storm with his 1986 breathtaking single, "Songbird" - exploring his talent for playing jazz so smoothly that a whole genre, "Smooth Jazz," formed around him, and questioning fundamental assumptions about art and excellence. In his own words, Kenny G speaks candidly about his musical background, his stringent work ethic, and his controversial standing in the jazz canon - along with insights from his fans and critics alike.
