    This must be a joke. Calling Norah Jones jazz is like calling Jimmy Kimmel erudite. Her album is nothing but bland jazz-lite for the Starbucks crowd. Have any of you even heard of Patricia Barber?

    This is really lame – norah jones should totally be in the pop category and the others are kind of bland jazz. I wish awards would have a separate category for populist jazz and another for jazz that does feature improvisation in its assembling of the musical text. David Ware is alright.

  • The Theory

    see, no one listens to or knows real jazz anymore.

    so to have two seperate jazz categories would be kind of redundant.
