Rock'n Roll is about a moment in time.
Jazz is about the story behind that moment in time.

Themes, structures, curiosity. That is where bop came from.

I see what you mean

I was thinking from a completely different angle

and agreed ....although I'm not sure I would call it curiosity ...more just inspired to expand on things guys like Lester Young and Louis Arnstrong before them had played
