So that's what smooth jazz is? Those are the folks who play smooth jazz? I'll contribute more to the cause but I don't think I'll attend the concert. I'd prefer watching paint dry. Oil based paint. Chas

I'm with Chas. This is more aptly called "snooze" music. With so many other conduits to this good cause available, I'll pass. Don't live anywhere near LA anyway, but it still annoys me that these "musicians" make a [relative] bundle from doing something that totally misses the essence of jazz, i.e., improvisation, while so many truly creative individuals can't even make ends meet without subsidizing their income with other work. Of course, this raises the question of why so many people listen (Is that the right word?) to this stuff (Could you actually stay awake through 3 hours of it?)--but that's a whole other subject.
