Throughout most of his six-decade career, musical icon Kenny G never let the size of his performance work against him. In his new documentary, Set It Off, the musician and artist — a genre-bending jazz saxophonist, hip-hop producer, composer, and composer of thousands of charts for jazz singers — sings not for the love of having an audience dancing and singing along, but rather to explore his own diverse career as the “poor man’s Michael Jackson.” The film takes a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of G’s countless records and albums, from the late-80s through mid-90s. Filmmakers Mike Leong and Rose Schlossberg spent countless hours with Kenny G as he reminisced about his early years, his childhood and childhood friends. So, too, they conducted interviews with his entire family, longtime collaborators, and more. Those interviewed in the film include Nina Simone, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Toni Braxton, Michael Irvin, and Martha Reeves. Set It Off, which makes its debut next weekend in New York City, is slated to come out nationally in the fall.
