AT LAST...THE DUETS ALBUM is something of a departure in terms of what one might expect from a Kenny G album. The mellow saxophonist came to fame as a purveyor of soothing instrumental jazz/pop, but AT LAST marks his collaboration with a bevy of superstar vocalists. The singers that join the man formerly known as Gorelick come from all musical walks; Brian McKnight adds his contemporary R&B touch to the 1980s Wham! hit "Careless Whisper," country/pop siren LeAnn Rimes kicks the album off with "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You," and, over the course of the record, everyone from Earth, Wind & Fire to Barbra Streisand turns up. There are a couple of instrumental duets here as well, though, featuring such esteemed musicians as Cuban trumpeter Arturo Sandoval and pop legend Burt Bacharach, making DUETS a well-rounded endeavor.
