    Regardless of how skaters choose to perform to it, to me jazz music has certain elements that separate it from pop or any other genre - elements such as syncopation, swing (whether hard or soft), improvisation, etc. The music of that Dom/Shabs program didn't (to my ear) have any of the above. To me it sounded more like popular musical theater or a film score.
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    Shostakovich's Waltz 2 for Jazz Suite is very clearly and definitely waltz. I've no idea why it has the word "jazz" in the title, but calling it jazz makes me LOL. Perhaps a joke on Shostakovich's part?

    There are tons of skaters who use more or less real jazz music, but few can truly express the essence and spirit of jazz.

    Now we're talking jazz. A 30s style, blues-influenced jazz number, but not an out-and-out blues as Sandra claims. A moaning saxophone does not a blues make, babe. (Apologies for being a pedant on that score. )

    Zip A Dee Doo Dah wouldn't normally be considered jazz, but Satchmo - 'nuff said. Dorothy Hamill in 1988.

    Does this Irving Berlin song qualify as jazz? It was originally written for Judy Garland in Easter Parade, but the number was cut because it was considered too risque. Here Katarina Witt does it justice.

    It would be considered classical, definitely, but Shostakovich was inspired heavily by jazz in his creation of the suite.
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.

    Umm, Olga Markova's neon green boa was a jazz number too, yes? Louis Armstrong? I pick that!

    Does this music/performance count as jazz? It has a "jazzy" feel for me.

    It's too bad Denise didn't come back for the 94 LiliHammer Games. She landed 3lutz, 3t, and 3sal in 1990 like it was nothing. Didn't Witt finish 6th with just a 3toe?

    Thank you everyone who contributed to this thread. I will for sure check some of your choices.

    Here is one more:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPh-kAXsrwo - recent EX program from Takahiko Kozuka, "Moondance".

    And the program which caused me to start this thread:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBL6vT9Z5Cw - "Puttin' on the Ritz" from Stéphane Lambiel
    (TV version has a bit sloppy performance, unfortunately)

    Kozuka is quite a jazz man
    2005/2006 SP Sing, Sing, Sing by Benny Goodman http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dl43Hzy5eVs (Just music, couldn’t find a link to performance)
    2005/2006 LP Piano Concerto in F by George Gershwin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuWpalAQoYU
    2006/2007 Exhibition I Could Have Danced All Night by Jamie Cullum http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHLMcdQE1O8
    2008/2009 SP Take Five by the Dave Brubeck Quartet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnpRKk1fdu0
    2008/2009 Exhibition Save the Last Dance for Me by Michael Buble http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NALIvgHQMk (with 3S + reverse-rotation 2S combination )
    2011/2012 SP Inner Urge by Joe Henderson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQqDLc_BkKY
    And his lovely brand new exhibition to Moon Dance by Michael Buble http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPh-kAXsrwo

    I just have to say I really like this guy’s music choices. Other than above mentioned he used some classic rock, rock folk, blues, (Simon & Garfunkel, Bee Gees, Nick Drake, John Mayer, Blues Brothers), some guitar (Guitar Concerto and Jimi Hendrix), great soundtrack by Joe Hisaishi.

    Thank you for the list, kapriza. I really enjoy Takahiko's jazzy performances. Such more "intellectual" than passionate type of music fits his "cold" style of skating and performing, I think.

    It took awhile to find but was worth it.

    Jazz music from Stevie Wonder's album, Songs in the Key of Life. From Stars On Ice.
