Kenny G

Wishes: A Holiday Album (Arista) This is the worst album I've ever heard. Closing track "Auld Lang Syne (Freedom Mix)" begins with Dubya's speech at Ground Zero, then G's caterwauling sax kicks in over 50 years of random historical audio snippets that make "We Didn't Start the Fire" sound like high scholarship. The song is willfully moronic and backhandedly disrespectful. More importantly, it proves what your heart already knows: Kenny G's music is as indefensible as pederasty.
