Is jazz music inherently low IQ?

It is the last refuge of the untalented musician. The people playing jazz music enjoy themselves far more than anyone listening to it.

he lack of form and structure
that may be the case with your OP, but there is a lot of structured jazz. not all jazz is free jazz or bebop and only because you only know miles davis and john coltrane doesn't mean all jazz is like that.
I can understand if you say that you can't listen to coleman, it really depends on how used you are to the strutctures of the genre and it does certainly require some understanding in the theory and what to listen for.

so if anything you need to educate yourself to understand or let's say appreciate it more. that makes it kinda high IQ

Does it matter if it's low IQ? Some people enjoy different forms of music. Some people even enjoy shitty music that they also know is shitty because people just enjoy different things. Lastly to judge music based off of it's "IQ" and not by numerous other factors is a low IQ thing to do.

It doesn't take extraordinary intelligence to be an extraordinary musician, so musical prowess isn't a very reliable indicator of IQ.

That said, it takes a pretty advanced knowledge of music to be a great Jazz musician. Miles Davis, John Coltrane and the rest of the giants knew their theory. Were they as gifted and erudite as the giants of classical music? My first instinct is to say no, but Jazz is very different and therefore requires a different set of skills.

Come back after you can explain what Adam Neely is talking about here.

The difference between jazz and classical is rhythm. Jazz is classical with rhythm. The fact that you can't decipher its form is your problem.

I'd say that the lack of form and structure compared to classical music would it make it so
Yeah, but we know what kind of butthurt shit you are, so...opinion disqualified, I guess.

Why does everything have to be a competition between races with you /newpol/fucks?

I think I know why. I think it's because you haven't (and probably never will) accomplish anything remotely substantial in your sad excuse for a life, and so you try to find validation in the accomplishments of the race you happen to belong to.

>>1Lack of form and structure? In jazz?
That was the dumbest thing I've read all week. Fucking /newpol/ is retarded man

lol thats the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Jazz musicians study the classics as well. They have to to know how to break down the forms. I don't even have time to begin how much more difficult jazz is compared to "classical" music.

Nothing wrong with jazz. It's far, far, *FAR* removed from the crap being spewed by nigs these days, which is utterly devoid of artistic merit.

Jazz, though? Jazz has always been good shit. And there have been excellent white and black jazz artists, without a doubt. When someone thinks jazz, their first two picks are Dave Brubeck and Miles Davis.

Black people never play instruments?
Do you live under a rock?

Jazz is fucking difficult. You try holding the beat in all that cacophony. You know what's utterly simple to play? White pop music.

(HINT: That's why they don't teach Jazz to 3rd graders.)

Tip to Rip

No music is inherently low IQ although some of the "listeners" are.
