Listening to Kenny G

Directed by Penny Lane Produced by Gabriel Sedgwick

Distributor/Streamer HBO/HBO Max

Kenny G is the best-selling instrumentalist of all time, and arguably the most famous living jazz musician. Listening to Kenny G is about why that makes certain people so mad. This inventive and thought-provoking documentary, directed by Penny Lane (Hail Satan?) looks at how our artistic tastes shape our personal identities and signal our social belonging.
Blending intimate moments with Kenny as he works on his first album in 7 years, rare archival footage of his four-decade-long career, and conversations with music critics, record executives, radio personalities, market researchers, and Kenny’s fans; whatever your opinion, Listening to Kenny G will challenge your preconceptions about music.
