Re: Pat Metheny on Kenny G and other Jazz greats
Well taking musical lead from David Foster was probably a bad idea. When Kenny G got in the elevator and said t"his is a happening place," David Foster said "Yeah, I come here all the time."
But I think that the fact that is was done for charity does explain why the estate would have him use it, and it also does nullify the misguided attempt to bring classic jazz to the masses. Well, this tune is far from classic jazz.
What Metheny gives to charity is his business; but even the publicity generated by the recording of Kenny G with Pops generated him a lot of money. Is it really charity when a millionaire gives away money he doesn't need. There is a certain amount of money that you need to survive, and everything on top of that is gravy, and everything on top of that is just a little too much for one man to know what to do with. lol
