"So what jazz?" Are you looking for a definition of jazz? Whether that's what you're looking for or not, here's a definition of jazz: "A type of music of black American origin characterized by improvisation, syncopation, and usually a regular or forceful rhythm, emerging at the beginning of the 20th century. Brass and woodwind instruments and piano are particularly associated with jazz, although guitar and occasionally violin are also used; styles include Dixieland, swing, bebop, and free jazz

Enthusiastic or lively talk, esp. when considered exaggerated or insincere

- 'all this jazz about how they can't afford it is preposterous.'"
