Let's hear Scott write an album anywhere near Letter From Home, Speaking Of Now or Bright Size Life then! :) I love Scott, but calling Pat the most plain vanilla jazz player ever is only true because he influenced just about every jazz guitarist since, which makes him plain because everyone copies him. Hope you understood that! :lol:

I still prefer Scott over Pat. By a country mile.

Kenny G really doesn't sound like Jazz.

Just from the name I'd think he's a rapper :lol:

I was reading this Scott H interview from 1999 and I saw this haha.

What do you make of the smooth jazz insurrection?
It’s jazz for people who don’t like jazz.

I’ve never understood what it has to do with jazz period. It’s instrumental adult contemporary pop. They piggyback the word "jazz" onto it as a way to give it an undeserving legitimacy.
I don’t think it has anything to do with jazz either. It’s basically top-40 without the vocals and a certain saxophone sound instead. It kind of disturbs me that people even call it jazz. Just because there’s no singer, they call it jazz. I think Led Zeppelin was more jazz than that is. If you listen to Led Zeppelin live, they were more of a jazz band than anything you hear on the Wave. They were improvising, extending and jamming. I sort of feel they were the first fusion band.
