Oh, Bob, you made a critical remark. Don't try to get out of it now. :)

I know what you mean. I am one of the most overly-critical people, and never like my playing; but I'm a wok in progress so that may be a good thing.

My remark about being wrong was meant to be taken as figuratively, as in Metheny is saying that Kenny is wrong, and I am saying that you are wrong. That is the whole crux of the point. You can say to someone "you are just wrong." What is jazz? These questions are not easy to answer; but it is Pat Metheny defining it, and I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.
