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!!

Intimate, with lots of cigarette smoke.
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.

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

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?
