Dear PollyG no relation to Kenny G I hope.

(Even when it plays swing)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I must stand up and be counted as a lover of swing and swing clarinet.

Benny Goodman (may his name be praised) and Arty Shaw are giants in my
book.
I could listen to them endlessly.

cheers

There's a "light jazz" radio station in Pittsburgh that I call the Kenny
G station because (I swear!) every time I've turned it on it was Kenny G
- maybe it wasn't, but I can't tell the difference. I find that it gets
irritating and very wearing after a while to have it on. I never feel
that way about my regular jazz station (WDUQ) (even when it plays
swing).
There is an incredible variety in jazz! Keeps me interested and
listening.
