futility reigns

With the legendary (if watered down) Newport Jazz Festival approaching, the Boston Globe, my hometown paper, decided the world needed a treatise on... smooth jazz.

For those of you who missed it the first time, I said my piece on Mr. Gorelick a few months ago. I've been doing this for six months already?

Oh, and I personally think Chris Botti is the worst hire Sting has EVER made. I've seen him several times live (though not with the great early solo bands) and every other horn player he's used (including some no-names) run rings around him. But he's gone over so big. Yet another reason I'm not a pop star...
