Creative jazz[edit]

I removed "Creative jazz" here -- there's no page to link to & it's not a genre I've ever heard of. -- I'm tempted to delete "Mini-jazz" too given that a google search turned up very little, though it does seem to be a real genre. --ND 21:03, 24 September 2006 (UTC)[reply]

I've put a citation request on the Mini-jazz article as nothing seems to show on Google other than versions of itself; nor does its major exponent. There is a subsection on Music_of_Haiti but that does not seem consistent with the article - and also calls it a form of "pure pop" rather than jazz. So until/unless there is some clarification of the genre and its notability, I think it better deleted from the template and will do so. AllyD (talk) 19:55, 10 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]
I have removed Mini-jazz as per the discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Jazz#Mini-jazz. "Creative jazz" was apparently already removed; I also removed it (a red link) from List of jazz genres. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 19:15, 11 February 2010 (UTC)[reply]

This template does a disservice to all of the great Jazz articles by grouping them together as a footer. By attempting to be as expansive as Template:Jazzbox it blurs too many topics together and takes away the individual poignancy of having separate boxes for each of the main topics, ala Genres, Topics, Lists and Lists of Musicians. It is too bad that User:TeaDrinker acted unilaterally in deleting Template:Jazz lists, which sought to establish the reality outlined above. • Freechild'sup? 04:29, 24 December 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Howdy! It is a minor (although important) technical point that the template was not deleted, but rather made to be a redirect to Template:Jazzfooter. This has the effect of making all instances where {{jazz lists}} is called, {{Jazzfooter}} shows up instead. This is not an administrative action, and can be reversed by going to Jazz lists (no redirect) and reverting to the version desired. For myself, I cam across this when speedy deletion was requested (which I denied in favor of the redirect, as the template was still in wide use), and have no feelings on what style is preferable. I would, however, be happy to help with whatever consensus decision is arrived at. --TeaDrinker (talk) 05:09, 24 December 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Template usage guideline[edit]

Should the Jazzfooter template only be added to articles that it links to, on the basis that it's a navigation box, the primary purpose of which is to provide one-click navigation between the most important jazz related articles? Or, should it be added to other jazz related articles as well, for example an article about a specific jazz musician? Mudwater (Talk) 12:22, 27 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Years in Jazz[edit]

Delete every year in jazz article: The "Decades in JAzz" articles are actually sufficient. The specific year articles have the same exact info. They should all be merged into their decade article. Cosprings (talk) 14:15, 24 January 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Semi-protected edit request on 8 November 2020[edit]

Could someone remove Yass from the list of genres? It's already under Polish jazz in the regional scenes. (talk) 03:21, 8 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

 Done.  Ganbaruby! (Say hi!) 03:14, 10 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Semi-protected edit request on 14 November 2020[edit]

I'd like more duplicates to be removed: European free jazz and Indo jazz. 2601:C7:C201:C640:85BE:D213:D771:BE33 (talk) 18:19, 14 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Not done for now. Please get a consensus on Talk:European free jazz and Talk:Indo jazz as to which of each should be kept. Once there is a consensus, any auto-confirmed editor can make the change. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 22:13, 15 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
They're both listed under Regional scenes, but they're also in Genres. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 05:05, 16 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, I know. That's because they are in both groups. My "Not done" remarks stand. Please treat each one as a separate issue and discuss them on the respective talk pages. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 15:18, 16 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Semi-protected edit request on 1 December 2020[edit]

Here's a series of requests I have:

  • Add Skiffle to the template.
  • Remove the duplicates for European free jazz and Indo jazz.
  • Take away the word "jazz" from all the genres in Regional Scenes and leave the links as redirects. 2601:C7:C201:C640:C463:3424:2A38:DE6D (talk) 18:47, 1 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  •  Not done. The page says folk music.
  •  Done.
  •  Not done. I believe the word "jazz" is clearer, but if someone else wants to change it, I'm fine with it too.

Semi-protected edit request on 30 December 2020[edit]

Could someone take Jump blues and Western swing from the Related section and put them in the Genres section? 2601:C7:C201:C640:206D:89D7:281D:2053 (talk) 04:44, 30 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done Jump blues and Western swing don't appear to be genres of Jazz. They seem to fit best in blues and country, respectively. Although they may be closely related, I think it makes sense to leave them in the "Related" section. Feel free to reply with more information. TimSmit (talk) 02:42, 2 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Jazz Cleanup[edit]

Could someone please make sure that this template has all genres that fit under jazz, and none that don't? I'd also like each genre to be put under the Jazz genres category and the template in all of the genres. Don't forget to message me. 2601:C7:C201:C640:F47E:5B35:8067:73AA (talk) 18:47, 7 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done: Edit requests are so that you can request a specific change, not to request that a template is reviewed and categories added where appropriate. If you wish a change to be made please review the template yourself and then add a request with the specific changes in the form "please change X to Y".

Semi-protected edit request on 11 February 2021[edit]

Could someone replace Neo-swing with Swing revival? (talk) 17:10, 11 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

 Done Thanks for bringing this to our attention. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 18:40, 11 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Organ Trio[edit]

Could someone remove Organ trio or put it in another section of this template? (talk) 00:20, 14 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

 On hold Discussion required: Organ trio claims that it is a genre of jazz. Why should it be removed from the template? davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 00:25, 14 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
 Not done for now: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit semi-protected}} template. P.I. Ellsworth  ed. put'r there 00:47, 14 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
From what I read, Organ trio is just a jazz ensemble, not a genre. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:C7:C201:C640:A4FE:75EE:F507:3C56 (talk) 20:52, 14 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hmm. Well IP2601+, have you read this Clique Hear page? and the editorial reviews on this page? and who knows what might show up when you search for it! P.I. Ellsworth  ed. put'r there 02:51, 17 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Blast Beat[edit]

Could someone put Blast beat in this template? 2601:C7:C201:C640:858:F10A:19EB:FFF3 (talk) 23:09, 21 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done. Not heavily used in jazz.  Ganbaruby! (Say hi!) 06:40, 22 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]


Could someone add Marabi to this template? (talk) 01:25, 21 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

More Requests[edit]

Could someone add Sacred jazz to this template and put Straight-ahead jazz in the genres section? 2601:C7:C201:C640:F47E:5B35:8067:73AA (talk) 17:22, 21 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Please establish a consensus to include Sacred Jazz and move Straight-ahead jazz. Thanks. ScottishFinnishRadish (talk) 12:55, 23 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Flamenco Jazz[edit]

Could someone add Flamenco Jazz to this template and then put the template in the Flamenco Jazz page? (talk) 22:40, 19 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

 Done Ferkjl (talk) 08:22, 20 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Regional scenes[edit]

Could someone move Cape jazz, Marabi, and Latin jazz (along with Afro-Cuban jazz) to Regional scenes? (talk) 23:39, 2 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done: The three you've listed here are in fact genres/music styles, rather than locations for regional jazz scenes. —oscitare (talk | contribs) 07:11, 24 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Could you group them under the regions they came from? (talk) 18:33, 29 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Semi-protected edit request on 12 December 2021[edit]


Could someone change the template to look more like this? (talk) 15:42, 12 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done for now: Anyone interested in this template and evaluating this request is probably going to need more context. What exactly is the difference between what you have posted and how the template is now? —Sirdog (talk) 01:06, 13 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I added some genres (Skiffle, Sacred jazz, and Straight-ahead jazz), moved Organ trio to Related, and divided the Regional scenes section by continent. (talk) 21:30, 13 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Semi-protected edit request on 16 April 2022[edit]

Could someone add Pugg to this music template? 2601:C7:C201:C640:5871:93FF:41B5:4E48 (talk) 19:57, 16 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format and provide a reliable source if appropriate. ‑‑ElHef (Meep?) 20:16, 16 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
My mistake. I left off the "l". I meant to say Plugg. It also has a stylistic origin in jazz. 2601:C7:C201:C640:5871:93FF:41B5:4E48 (talk) 23:12, 16 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Semi-protected edit request on 15 May 2023[edit]

Could you add Jazz Fest: A New Orleans Story in the Media navigation box (talk) 06:22, 15 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done: The films and TV series currently included in the Media navigation box are highly acclaimed and culturally significant. Jazz Fest: A New Orleans Story is not. voorts (talk/contributions) 03:53, 16 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]

You may wish to add Ethio-jazz to the list of African subgenres (talk) 11:36, 30 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]
