Jazz -- Instruction and study;
In the book THE STORY OF JAZZ, author Marshall Stearns (1956) tells the story of a conference of musicologists. During a conversation following the conference, a representative from the classical music world told another from the jazz world that it wasn't that he hated jazz music, it was the fact that its musicians and patrons treated the music as if it were holy. The jazz person pointed out the same could be said about people in the classical world. The classical person's response to this accusation was simply, "Ah, BUT CLASSICAL MUSIC IS!"
