Kenny G, the poodle-haired smooth jazz saxophonist, has seriously jeopardized his status as the most popular closing act no one in China has heard of by joining in democracy protests in Hong Kong. Up until today, Kenny G was almost certainly the most listened-to Western artiste in the whole of China. This is because, for well over a decade, his sultry easy-listening jazz anthem Closing Time has become the equivalent of clocking off s ...
