The NYT still classifies Jazz with "Pop". I suppose that's left over from 1910 or whatever when Jazz was popular music as opposed to sophisticated music. The reality is that these days Jazz belongs in the category with "Classical", since they are both dead forms, and they're more about society functions and people pretending to be sophisticated and nostalgia and image than they are about making music.
