Just wondering if anyone else caught Ken Burns' Country Music documentary on PBS. Of course there were only rare glimpses of saxophones during the sixteen hour marathon, but I was into the history of a musical genre I really didn't know too much about and it was fascinating. The only drawback was Wynton Marsalis showing up with horn in hand, though thankfully any playing he might have done ended up on the editing room floor. I had to mute the TV whenever he did show up. But it was kinda like when Shelby Foote appeared in Burns' Baseball documentary; just out of place (though Foote was never annoying). It was bad enough Wynton ruined Burns' take on Jazz... but it was really painful to see him in this one, and completely unnecessary.
