Hear! Hear! We keep agreeing! To me jazz is predominantly entertainment 
rather than the sort of 'Art' which must demand clinical silence and respect. More 
harm has been done to jazz by the 'arts followers' than anything else. Not 
just OKOM but the modern styles have lost more audience through being turned into 
some 'art' which only those in the 'know' can understand. These 'arts' people 
tend to look down their long noses at anyone who say "I don't know much about 
it but I like it - it's fun" because the 'commoners' do not appreciate the 
finer nuances of the music. 

Jazz is a true music of the people!
