It always stuck in my craw when I heard a noted jazz trumpet diss Miles for his recording of Cyndi Lauper's famous tune (here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OddHP8_Em7s ) I withheld the name of the famous cat who put Miles down. If only because this is a thread dedicated to not prejudging others. However I almost want to print the fool's name in inch high letters. This guy actually dissed Miles while Miles was still alive! Miles got him back Hint: The (name withheld) trumpet player has a famous brother who plays sax... Another negative critique I always wished wasn't writ is Pat Metheny's infamous diatribe into Kenny G. (here JazzOasis.com - Pat Metheny on Kenny G) I respect Pat Metheny but he should have known better. His diss against Kenny G was uncalled for and indicates to me some kind of ulterior motive. Human jealousy. And Kenny G probably isn't worth all the hate. As my minister tells me whenever I get pissed: "Don't give away power". End lecture. Now let's go back to listening to Miles. Thanx.
