I've listened to 'strings' works by a number of jazz artists and enjoyed them just fine. If nothing else, we don't have to wonder how they might've functioned in such settings. (and I find them a lot more interesting than 'smooth jazz')

They also provide a means to wean the average listener off of vocals and build their tolerance for instrumentals. It's good light listening, and let's now forget that a lot of these guys were actually pretty thrilled to work in that format.

Of course, this could be a bit boring to tour with night after night, but that probably gave some of those guys an even deeper appreciation for a rhythm section like Oscar Peterson's.
