JAZZ: n, A form of music which is original and played by mentally superior musicians as opposed to rap or other low forms of verbal pornography and immature expressions of anger.
Also: To inject liveliness or spunk into something.
One of the greatest cd's of all time is "Kind Of Blue" by Miles.
Another is "Sugar" by Stanley Turrentine.
These are both excellent jazz cd's.

Style of music that originally was for people to dance to, feel good music rebelling against the austere old classical style. Eventually a bunch of bitter hipsters turned it into an expression of elitism, and it lost major popularity outside "intellectuals" and conservatories. When it was institutionalized, and every suburban white boy could be the next coltrane, it became as calculated and elitist as the classical music it was supposed to rebel against. True jazz stirs both thoughts and emotions (and can be, *gasp* FUN), don't mistake anything else for it.
"oh my god, that Jazz song is in 17/4 timing-- it must be good" - overheard at many a concert

The coolest Transformer. In the original series he turned in a Martini Porsche and was voiced by Scatman Crothers. He likes music, break dancing and generally getting down. Jazz was Optimus Prime's intelligent, highly skilled right-hand man and one of the few original Autobots to survive the battle with Unicron. Unfortunately Mr.Crothers died before the third season of the show, so Jazz was seen occasionally but did not speak throughout the final(American) season. He has had several toys including: Generation 1 Jazz, an Action Masters Jazz, a Pretenders Jazz, a Generation 2 version of the original(G1) toy, a recent gold version, a couple of ceramic busts, and a few statuettes.

In Michael Bay's Transfomers(2007) movie the Jazz character took on a more serious tone and was voiced by Darius McCrary. He turned into a Pontiac Solstice and died at the end of the movie(which was totally lame).

In the newest Transformers series, Animated, Jazz's personality is closer to that of the original character. This time around he is voiced by Phil LaMarr. And turns into a futuristic Porsche-like sports car with graphics paying homage to the original Jazz's Martini stripes.
"Do it with style or don't bother doing it"-was Jazz's motto according his tech-spec card.
