Subj: Not Who, but What, is K.G.?
Date: Thu, 11 Dec 1997 19:41:20 -0500
Roger Shilcock asks "Who is K.G.?"
How refreshing that you should need to ask! At first I was going to say
that's like asking who Ronald McDonald is, but that's really not fair.
K.G. is Kenny G., an alto sax/soprano sax (and sometimes clarinet, I
hear) player who sells an awful lot of what used to be called mood music
albums. He gets a lot of derision, as you may have already noticed on
the list, but he's really not that bad, and in fact sometimes I almost
enjoy him. Sort of like what Yanni (Yawn-i) is to the piano or whatever
it is he plays - my mind goes numb at the thought of him.
Now if you're really lucky, Roger, you can honestly ask "Who is Michael
Bolton?" I sure wish I didn't know.
