Default Re: Pat Metheny on Kenny G and other Jazz greats

Jazz afficiandos can be the toughest of critics upon each other that ever walked the earth. I read Metheny's roasting of KG, and while I agree with it in principle, the strict standards (pentatonic vs blues scale, etc) seem a bit overfetched. I think most of the New orleans jazz founders probably would be confused and perplexed at what he was saying. I think alot of those guys wandered back and forth including Louis. I think jazz purists often bind themselves up in their own chains.
