Sorry, Dave, but you forgot the BIG HAIR. You can't play smooth jazz without the big hair thing. Big hair makes your sound brighter, darker, more spread, and more focused.
Of course emoting is important as well, you gotta emote! To emote you need to really squeeze your eyes shut tight and prance about like peacock. Show them your moves!

A good friend of mine who teaches jazz at a local University compares "traditional jazz" to "smooth jazz" with a cheese analogy. They make Cheeze Whiz spell it that way because it contains such a small amount of "real" cheese. To call it "cheese" amounts to false advertising. I think we should start a movement to change the spelling of "Smooth Jazz" to something different for the same reason.

Comparing natural cheese and processed cheese.

Pasteurized / heat-shocked milk? No way the resulting product can be called cheese!

My cheese guy would call Tillamook a "dairy product".

I thought so too!

I think "instrumental pop" or something like that would be a better description for it. I think it shares a lot more harmonic/structural attributes with pop/RnB music than jazz.

Until then, let's see what your intestines think of this! (go to 5:40)
Oh no, you're not going to sucker me in THAT easily!!



Okay, I lied, I already saw that one but it was like someone offering to show you a horribly infected wound - you don't want to look but you can't help yourself. On the plus side, the bit starting at 5:25 reminded me I need to check on the duck prosciutto I have curing in the basement.

Just as Cheez Whiz is spelled the way it is, why not Smoov Jizz?

Snooz Pizz?
