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

I saw the kind of attitude that has lead to the musak concept in a letter to today's paper:
Isn't it double jeopardy to be punished with teenage angst lyrics such as ''baby, baby there ain't nobody else'' while waiting 15 minutes on the phone to a bank? Please, XXXXX, just give me quiet music and you may charge whatever fees you like.
The trick is to find music that is so inoffensive that the only offence caused will be to those like us who are offended by excessive inoffensiveness. And of course, we don't matter ...
