Kenny G's entry into the smooth jazz market was publicly criticized by two notable jazz guitarists.
Guitarist Pat Metheny's criticisms of Kenny G are especially well documented and archived on Jazz Oasis.com. Drawing Metheny's extreme ire was Kenny G's overdubbing of Louis Armstrong's recording of What a Wonderful World,
Metheny criticized G further, saying that the saxophonist had:" ...through his unbelievably pretentious and calloused musical decision to embark on this most cynical of musical paths, shit all over the graves of all the musicians past and present who have risked their lives by going out there on the road for years and years developing their own music inspired by the standards of grace that Louis Armstrong brought to every single note he played over an amazing lifetime as a musician.
