It's amazing how people's opinion's vary

Jazz is an expression of thought and feeling. It can be slow and melancholy, or quick and light. It's simply what the musicians feel at the time. It's mainly instrumental, but sometimes there can be singing. I've read some of the definitions, apparently some dislike the lack of word. Well some things can't be expressed in words.
Many kinds of music came from jazz.

The word Jazz has its origins in the Creole brothels (Jas houses) of New Orleans in the late 19th century.
Working girls were called jezebels or jesebels, shortened to "jes" or "jez". The pronunciation was closer to "Jas", hence the term "Jas house" for brothel. Music was provided for the clients, and this music became known as "Jas music", sometimes called "Jass music".
A popular explanation for the difference in spelling is that when the word "Jass" was featured in flyers and posters, the letter "J" was often crossed out, leaving "ass" in its place. Promoters felt that "ass music" was a bit inappropriate, so the spelling was changed from "Jass" to "Jazz", hence "Jazz music".
