Well, I think Pat Metheny isn't jazz. He's definitely metal.

Seriously though : I had never heard of Kenny G before, and I actually listened to one of his songs, just to check what it was all about. Can't remember the title now... Songbird ? Probably the most mainstream title from Kenny G.
I gotta say although I'm not a fan at all, I think Pat Metheny's take on Kenny G's music is really harsh.
It's definitely not music that I find amazingly great, but calling it something along the lines of " the stupidest music that could ever possibly be in the history of human beings " is surely over the top.

Never heard of Kenny G??? :shock:

But seriously, I think Pat says that only because they were saying Kenny G was jazz and, as a jazz player, he was ofended.

If Kenny G is THAT bad, just picture what he'd say about Justin Bieber! :chew:

Kenny G really doesn't sound like Jazz.

I've never been able to appreciate Kenny G's music but I also can't appreciate Pat Metheny as a person.
Pat Metheny - Brilliant musician but a douchebag.

If I had a choice of which of the two to crack a beer with, it'd be Kenny.

I'd like to think that Kenny G is a sell out. But that doesn't make him any different from the guys who play covers in their YouTube channels by posting their "own version" and in a way getting like a billion subscribers, then eventually started posting their own stuff and since they have subscribers already they're all like yay cool.

I honestly was annoyed at first about that, cause my YT channel has shitty views as well. I covered an Anime song and it gets more (and faster) views than my original song. I did that when I was bored, the labor doesn't equate to it. So I initially thought it was unfair. So for people to listen to my crap, I have to lure them in first with sell out stuff? I dunno.

But Kenny G is still a great musician and I like his music. Yeah I don't really consider it as jazz much but smooth jazz is kind of really like that. I think Kenny G is sort of like a bridge towards better music. Since his music is so "appealing" and "easy" to the ears of many, if they like him, maybe eventually they'd like other jazz musicians as well. I, for one, love fusion and what not but I never forced that music on any of my friends because I know they won't appreciate it as regular good music nor would they "understand" it (speaking for musicians). I honestly wouldn't slap in some Tribal Tech immediately to someone who wants to get into fusion, but maybe some Guthrie would be nice, right? Maybe eventually Holdsworth if that person really gets into it.

Like one person on YouTube said on some video I saw, they will find this music and these musicians when their ears are ready.

Pat Metheny is totally right though. It's tough when you say jazz and people immediately think of like Kenny G. How I look at it though, is that it's the same with Pop too (though not as devastating?). Not all Pop = Bieber. I mean Michael Jackson is pop but he's super awesome right?

I propose that people stop using music genres and stick with two: good and bad :lol:

:lol: I will be the 1st to defend your right to listen to whatever the heck you want to, even if Pat may disapprove.

Music, like so many other forms of art, is relative.
Why not listen to what makes you happy?

Personally, I prefer Metheny to G., but Kenny G. must be doing something right to be so successful. He is easy to listen to.

If you guys think Metheny is brutal...you guys should hear some of the things Scott Hendo told me about what he thinks about Kenny G.

almost along the lines of "that pos should die"


There's more than that of course...but I don't know. That gives you kind of an idea of how much he hates him

Awesome picture, Pao, Henderson makes me LOL. (The Ask Scott section of his forum is hilarious.)

What's the pic all about, d'you know? Illegal downloaders of his albums?

Eggsactly. He hates that shit. I've had the pleasure of listening to him rant face to face. It's amazing. Ask him what he thinks of Pat Metheny. ;]

He plays with Travis Carlton now, but he used to....nvm. Let's just say he ain't to keen on Larry's playing either. LOL.

Of course, he loves Scofield, and surprisingly really likes Andy Timmon's playing (can't say if he likes his music), and I quote

"The ONLY person that can make a BB preamp is that guy Andy Timmons...I've jammed with him once and MAN, that guy can PLAY!"

"Pat Metheny is the most white bread, plain vanilla, jazz player ever" (You can exchange most white jazz players in replacement, specially the cheesy ones)

He used to be less than keen on Guthrie, but after he met him "Yeah, we had a chat...he's a really nice guy!"

And you guys should see the thousands of dog pictures and porno on his computer.

He's is by far the most quirky, weird, funny guy I've ever met.

I always thought of him as straight and really honest. It's that "calling it like it is" that makes House MD so funny, though Henderson would probably hate the comparison. :mrgreen:
