I never  said, nor do I think I implied, that someone's playing on soprano   
saxophone had less validity than on other instruments. I just think this   
instrument is a more difficult fit in Jazz, and many (if not most) alto,   tenor, 
and bari players recognize that fact; either that, or they recognize  that  
the audiences might go nuts (or go away) if they only played  soprano.

it also doesn't help the instrument's image here knowing that kenny g. is  
probably the most successful soprano sax player ever. painful.
