i wouldn't call it crap per se. it's like an alice in chains leftover with a little bit of velvet underground sprinkled over top.

to call it jazz is foolish. just because it has marimba and a double bass doesn't NOT make it jazz. it's a pop song. plain and simple. it connects the dots and follows the patterns. there is NOTHING of this track that even halfway even resembles jazz. it gets lounge-y around 3 minutes in. the sax solo sounds forced and tacked on, hardly an obscure instrument in rock/pop music either.

this is about as jazz as alanis morrissette (as in - not at all)

Yeah, you put it right. I'm a little blind when it comes to genres I guess and still have a lot to learn.

I like the song however.

it's all good we all start somewhere (i used to think sabbath had a jazz angle based on 'planet caravan' haha). that song is a good one. but not jazz

now this on the other hand, is SMOKIN' old school jazz.

YouTube - Art Ensemble Of Chicago theme de yoyo

the difference is less about the instruments used but the difference in how the instruments are used.
