Jazz saxophonist Kenny G will be visiting South Africa at the end of the year.

Canoc Productions on Wednesday announced that the musician is set to play one show in Johannesburg, at the Coca-Cola Dome on 20 November 2014.

Tickets are available from Computicket and cost between R590 - R1200.

Kenny G, born Kenneth Bruce Gorelick in Seattle, Washington, started playing saxophone at the age of ten, after he first saw someone playing the instrument on the 'The Ed Sullivan Show'.

He went on to became a sideman for Barry White's Love Unlimited Orchestra when he was 17 years old, and later played in a funk band called Cold, Bold and Together, before becoming a member of The Jeff Lorber Fusion.

Kenny G, however, embarked on a solo career in the early 80s and swiftly enjoyed chart success with his early albums. His sixth studio album, 'Breathless', became the number one best selling instrumental album of all time.

In 1997, he made it into the Guiness Book of World Records for playing the longest note ever recorded on a saxophone, by holding an E-flat for 45 minutes and 47 seconds.

Kenny G last visited South Africa in 1998, for a double bill with fellow American musician and singer-songwriter, George Benson
