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

Polly, do you think people are really embracing mechanized music, or more likely being force fed it by self proclaimed experts that think they know more about how to market music than anyone else? I suspect the latter, myself. I also think the mechanization of music is one reason it is dying on the vine. When we get computers laying down rythm tracks on pop songs and robots painting paintings, people will eventually notice it and want more human involvement. It may be a slow process, but look at how many areas already where handmade goods are much more sought after, with all their imperfections, than their mass produced perfect counterparts. Madonna even went back to a human drummer recently, imagine that. People will eventually get burned out on soul-less cookie cutter pop hooks, mark my words.
