What's this all about Kenny G.? You may or may not like his music, but he's obviously a genius with his sax. I'm not that hot about his repertoire either, but he can convay more emotions than most artists can with their voice. You just have to listen. I mean, really listen.

Dear Thrillmetoo, 
 
I was going to explain in more detail about why Kenny G. had his reputation... But before I write anything like that, I want to make sure, you are being sarcastic right? I've never heard anybody say this about Kenny G before.

He's a competent player that has a unique ability to connect with pop audiences on an emotional level. That is the extent of his "genius", and why serious jazz musicians hate him as he laughs all the way to the bank.

I was unusually serious. 'Forever in love' is still one of my favorites. On most of his tracks the backing music is as sterile as a pickeled eunich, though...

That's because the Grammy's are completely biased, If You remember year's ago when M. Jackson was listed under best Metal song because Eddie Van Halen played guitar on one of His song's. That say's it all.

Shannon Elizabeth... Droools....... Favorite character in American Pie for sure! =D
 
was this a PR stunt though? Or are they really that audio conscious?
 
I don't really see hifiman appealing to the masses with it's short battery life, tiny internal memory and I would say 'different' user interface.
 
I hesitate to buy one based on those 3 things.

FORTUNATELY. I'm having the same feeling most of the time, but I like that. It gives me the rush of discovery and the feeling of being the first.
