Just speaking out of my fish (or is that a hat?) I could see where the 
early Dadaists would relate well to jazz. Both  developed at about the 
same time in the first part of the 20th century. As "anti-intellectual 
"intellectual" artists" and creating  spontaneous creations I am sure 
they embraced the concept of "lower class" Blacks making improvised 
"primitive jungle music."  My art history classes were many years ago 
but i do recall reading about the association of dada and early jazz.

I did a quick Google search on "Dada jazz" and found many hits.

I am guessing that the Bauhaus theories would apply more to 
"Neo-classic" or "serious" compositions, not as much to traditional
