from EVEN IF MY HEART WOULD BREAK (single)
written by Franne Golde & Adrian Gurvitz
Like him or not, sax superstar Kenny Gorelick, better known as Kenny G, is the all-time best seller in the instrumental pop/contemporary jazz arena. His overall sales exceeded an astonishing 75 million records worldwide. In 1992, the Seattle-born instrumentalist released his Breathless cd that went on to sell over 12 million copies in the US and 15 million worldwide. A large part of that cd was produced by Gorelick with a few selected tracks helmed by David Foster and Walter Afanasieff. The Hitman with Afanasieff co-produced the two vocal numbers; “By The Time This Night Is Over” with r&b star Peabo Bryson and “Even If My Heart Would Break” featuring the unmistakable voice of Aaron Neville of Neville Brothers fame. The first song is the subject of a past review and became a solid, multi-format hit.
