    I hear some large whooshing noises .... not necessarily on the clip.

    Christ, thats even funnier than the shred version. Vomit inducing. Oh yes!!

    Just in case anyone is in doubt. There is a whole scene of “shredding” on you tube, where folks take an original video and dub their version over the top. Usually for comic effect.

    I like the one ( I suppose I would, given my user name ) where they take the Dave Brubeck band playing TAKE 5, and do their version...in 4/4, instead of 5/4

    I also thought it was horrible. Just a pure contrivance.

    Hi Tom. Yes i agree. These guys can play, and know what they are doing

    Not only do they adapt the tune, but the alto player takes Desmond’s original solo and adapts it to 4/4.
    Except the very end, about 1.28, when he injects a most un Desmond like flurry!! Love it.

    Ps love the Vivaldi.

    I think Kenny is a great player , just don’t like what he’s been playing for the last 30 years

    IMO Kenny G plays anodyne musical 'pap'.

    If that's what you like then so be it.
