I do have a book of transcriptions of his earlier stuff that I bought many years ago. I am sure you will be able to find this and other scores on Amazon or other online music stores.

If you have NoteWorthy Composer, the whole thing for Forever In Love with accompaniment is here:

You can most likely get a free copy of NoteWorthy Composer from Downloads.com that will open this for you. It's for Bb Sax, but transposition is easy with the program.

There is also a midi of the accompaniment here:

But that midi will only sound as good as your computer soundcard. I have an mp3 made with my audio setup that sounds like it's being played on a grand piano with real string backup.

Let me know if this helps.

Have you checked your local bubble gum machine?
I couldn't resist!! He holds the world record for the longest sustained note, start there. The one note samba without phrasing, lol.

Besides the stuff members here may be willing to pass on, Kenny G. has several songbooks out with his sheet music which you can find online at the major bookstores (Barnes & Noble, Hastings), on Amazon.com, and Ebay.

Nice playing and interesting clip. For one thing, you sound totally different from Kenny G! Your sound is a lot more mellow, and has a distinctly classical tone to it IMO.. Claude Delangle plays Kenny G?
Well,

That's on a Goldbeck mouthpiece that I sold several months ago. The Goldbeck sounded a little too tight and a bit pitchy to me. I need to rerecord it with the Florida Link I have now, but I'm really not that much of an alto guy. Here's a very old clip of me doing Kenny G on sop.

Nice- thanks! Intonation seems more secure on this compared to the Goldbeck alto clip, and I still get the classical vibe with your vibrato, not a bad thing..
