The term  "smooth jazz" has been an unfortunate one in many ways. Botti is 
right, I  think, when he draws parallels to Chet Baker in his  recent recording, 
 yet his categorization as a "smooth" artist hurt  his attention on jazz  
radio.

Many folks who disparage smooth jazz might find it benign if it  were  called 
"instrumental pop" for example.


 
any station that tries to lump chet baker in with kenny g. as  equals...i 
really can't think of a nice way to end that sentence, so nevermind.
