What is jazz?

Start with what it is NOT.

It is not middle of the road, sell out commercial junkie sound. it is not groupie-gorging badhair, roaring superstars. it is not the tip of a hat or the tip of a scale. It is not half baked, unread, or unreal. It is not tripped out headread cyberpimp slapsound. It is not odious, orderless expertimental. It is not sentimental. It is not drugs or sex or hot or cold.

Jazz is the soul singing. To know it is to feel.
