Hmm. Does that structure imply that the speaker does not consider jazz to be music? ;-)

I can imagine a disciple of German philosopher Theodor W. Adorno uttering such a sentence. But I guess his opinion is more a point against Adorno than against jazz ;-) http://is.gd/cTmOod

I wonder if this question was meant as a joke.

Although, even as a music major, I find jazz difficult to enjoy in most circumstances. That being said, it's highly intellectual music. It's kind of the proving-ground for spontaneous creativity. So, in any case, I can still at least appreciate jazz.
