Kenny Garrett’s appearance at the club I’m guessing…..was…..2003 was supposed to be one of the greatest experiences of my life. At that time the ‘real’ Kenny G was my absolute favorite saxophonist on the planet and in order to bring him to The Cellar I had to go well beyond what our means were at that time. To say the show was a disappointment would be a massive understatement and I would need to post a very very long post to explain the various reasons why. Suffice to say I never had him back nor will I ever have him back. In the 12 years of owning the club I have never had anyone NOT understand the vibe of The Cellar and the person who runs it.
I have to say however there were some amazing musical moments especially when he played two thirds of the second set with just the piano player.
