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:
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.
