This week, we're happy to welcome talented saxophonist Kenny G and his wistful version of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." The song, now a beloved classic, made its debut when Judy Garland sang it in the 1944 flick, Meet Me in St. Louis. Since then it's been covered by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Twisted Sister.
Kenny — his real name is Kenneth Goshdarnit — is, of course, the biggest-selling instrumentalist in the history of records. His very first album went gold, but his late '80s/early '90s stuff sold like hotcakes: 1992's Breathless went 12 times platinum. To put that in perspective, it's a lot of times!
We certainly hope you enjoy our spirited, seasonal captions. And please come back, all ye faithful, next week, when Boyz II Men bring even more holiday cheer to Framed!
