If you support the music of Kenny G as a part of the broader jazz idiom, and are sick of GTESTERS dissin’ the guy then this is the post for you. Anecdotally the common traits of the archetypal GTESTER are:


a. They cant play
b. Often they cant hear
c. They haven’t recorded a CD let a lone sold millions.
d. They only shower intermittently
e. They don’t eat meat.

If you care to add to this list or support Kenny G in general, post away.




"GTESTERS" - these are poster's who are anti Kenny G. It’s a new phrase. I coined it. Let it be a part of the SOTW lexicon from here forth.

If you are truly committed to your cause, you should consider changing your avatar to a Kenny G album cover. I'm pretty sure Getz and Gilberto would support that!

I can both play and hear. I have recorded a CD (as can anyone with a computer and a little knowledge). I don't have the distribution clout of a major label, so there are a ton of players better than me and Mr. Gorelick put together that haven't sold millions of recordings.

. I shower and eat meat.

Your whole argument has so many holes in it that I don't know where to begin.


I still don't care for his recordings, and detest the ones he made 'with' Pops.

Clearly this thread is meant to be sort of humourous, so let's not go nuts with the "so many holes" etc. If you don't get it, move on.

Its not the point of this post, really. Guido started another post that would suit your view point:

As marton suggests, Move On.
It looks like you have been around here long enough with 2410 posts to your credit to have seen enough Kenny g threads to know what's happening with that. Ok now I will move on at my own pleasure thank you.

I actually have some CDs of music I hate. It's not really that unusual.

SP - Thats not esoteric - Its a tongue in cheek description of GTESTERS as basically, in American terms, dye for my art, tree hugging . . . . . liberals. And I cant use that term, i know.
