I always felt a little sorry for Kenny. I remember him from Jeff Lorber Fusion group that my brother used to play at home. He could blow. Just got caught up trying to make a living and became the poster child for smooth jazz. I'm sure he didn't resist when he saw the piles of money. Who wouldn't? For an instrumentalist (I won't call him "jazz") to have those kinds of record sales without touring in that late decade of electro-pop, hair metal and hip hop was unheard of.

The biggest transgression was the studio duet with the late Louis Armstrong and then association with Michael Bolton. Total travesty.

And yeah, his music sucks.

Any musician with integrity and there are lots. You do not become a jazz musician to make money.

I hear more than enough Kenny G at the grocery store.
No need to buy a CD.

My enduring memory of Mr. G was from Celebrity Death Match when Flea stuck his sax up his ass and farted out a melody.
