[quote user="Charlie Jefferson"][quote user="tractorboy"] but I've just got Keith Jarrett's "The Koln Concert"[/quote] Me too and many Pat Metheny albums up to 1986 - it's just that I must have been elsewhere when they rolled out the Smooth Jazz franchise. The name, and sorry to go on about this, just seems so redolent of saccharine sax solos ala Kenny G and that one Dave Stewart had a number 37 hit with, way back when. [/quote]
Ho, ho. For me, "smooth jazz" conjures up an image of a young pipe-smoking hipster with one arched eyebrow nodding his head in time to the music and going "Mmm, niiice".
