This serves a few purposes. It gives the offended a real way to express their views on the subject. It also would send a message to the general public just what it is that Kenny G did to offend the dyed in the wool jazz enthusiasts. It gives the offended power in that it's obvious that they're not going to sit back and take Kenny G's desecration of an icon.

Music is about expression, right? What better impetus is there for writing a scathing rebuttal than being PO'd at someone?
Great idea, but that implies either one (Metheny or Kenny G) actually sing! LOL
It would just have to be instrumental music that implied their frustrations....

No, but I can seem them throwing sax reeds at each other......
