Lightbulb Questions about Jazz

Hello! I am an Interior Design Student and I'm starting a project for a Jazz Museum. I need anyone and everyone to help out with my questionaire for my beginning research! I know that all of these questions could be talked about in great length, but just short answers are all I'm looking for now. But of course if you'd like to talk in depth, thats ok too. Anything would be helpful and if you have any extras you want to talk about feel free. Thanks!!


Questions

What is the heart of jazz?
What are five words to describe jazz?
Would you prefer an intimate venue or one that is more open and grand?
If you are a performer, how do you like your audience to be around you?
Do you prefer an elevated platform or a flat surface for entertaining?
What kinds of things would make you not want to go to a certain place to see jazz?
What are the top five things you think should be covered in a jazz museum?
What colors to you think embody the world of jazz?
Do you see jazz in black and white or in color?
If you could relate jazz to an architectural style, which style would it be?
What would make you feel comfortable in an instrumental classroom setting?

The music.
Nice x5.
Intimate, with lots of cigarette smoke.
Alive.
Elevated, but not too high (I have vertigo).
Suicide bombers/machete wielding maniacs on crack...those kind of things.
None, they should be left uncovered so people could view them.
All the colours of the rainbow.
Neither. I see jazz like the stripes on a huge Blackpool deckchair.
Art Deco/post modern Teletubbies.
A gigantic leather sofa and scantily clad woman serving Pimms

What is the heart of jazz? Self Expression.

What are five words to describe jazz? Soul, groove, listen, improv, cool

Would you prefer an intimate venue or one that is more open and grand? For a museum, a large venue. To play, an intimate one, but not too intimate.

If you are a performer, how do you like your audience to be around you? Attentive, enjoying themselves, and clap after ech solo and after they hear something they like.

Do you prefer an elevated platform or a flat surface for entertaining? Doesn't matter

What kinds of things would make you not want to go to a certain place to see jazz? Chris Botti

What are the top five things you think should be covered in a jazz museum? History, influences, styles, impact, artists

What colors to you think embody the world of jazz? Blue, duh. Smokey, dark blue.

Do you see jazz in black and white or in color? You don't see music at all. It's balck music, but interpreable and and playble and felt by all people of all colours, races, genders, whatever.

If you could relate jazz to an architectural style, which style would it be? A smokey little bar, I don't know.

What would make you feel comfortable in an instrumental classroom setting? What the **** are you talking about?
