Kenny G...Gee, what can you say? I was looking at a poster of the A Great Day In Harlem photo while talking with someone about Kenny G and it struck me that he has no doubt made more money doing his shallow and soulless crap than all those jazz folks assembled in that photo made collectively in their lifetimes! What does it profit a man to make all that money when he has to sell out his soul and his sense of a jazz heritage to get it. Like Fred Hersch said: he's the only sax player he knows who can sneer while he's playing!

Rab Hines

This looks like it could be a worthwhile project for the people at the great Eccentric Soul label.

Chris Darkheart

Any chance you'll write something about the Washington D.C. go-go scene? Now that's something that's yet to recieve any wider attention....
