I don't know, Mart. Concerning Petrescu, Peterson or Tatum, does  
prodigious technique, or even pyrotechnics automatically exclude their  
music from being jazz?  It is certainly jazz to me, but may not be  
jazz to others. I'm OK with that as long as the others don't try to  
categorically define it as "not jazz". And by the same token, I don't  
try to categorically define it as "jazz".

I'm happy with "music", modified by good or bad, as the description.
