Jazz music is a soulful blend of African and European music sensibilities and it even sits well with the crowds who don't really understand the swings and the blues involved in it. The mass appeal which it associates itself with, is the underlying primitive character of jazz and no amount of new-age music can actually match up to it's true identity.
