I still do it from time to time. I used to tell my instructor I was playing contemporary jazz. You are correct about jazz being all about the spirit of improv. I guess if the mod hits and you feel the need to bend, then bend until you scratch that itch.

The jazz musicians of the 20s had more talent in their fart gas, than Kanye and Perry could ever hope to possess. That's like comparing Pee Wee Herman to John Wayne. No comparison.

No, but it was popular in the sense that people would listen to it at parties and other social gatherings, much like what we consider pop music of today. It was accessible to everyone.

I actually find Bebop more musical masturbation then modern jazz

And Xiaoxi has a good point, and really there's not an accepted scale of "Musical-element-Relations" to rate which genres relate better.
