Well exactly. They're in the record business for goodness sake. Jazz records don't sell, they don't make any money, and I don't see how it makes any sense to blame that on Kenny G. I don't think it makes any sense to look for anyone or anything to blame. Jazz just isn't popular, jazz doesn't sell records, and that's all there is to it.
