Personally Dan I don't understand your post at all.

Art form--bad?

You mention Bernstein but neglect to point out that Bernstein himself was a purveyor of Jazz/classical cross over music, and it could be argued that it was his best music too. It is his music that I love the best.

Perhaps you refer to cross over music that like oil and water refuses to jell and by the way makes it pretty easy to say;--this is the jazz part --this is the classical---this is improvisatory etc. Even if it entertains it doesn't add up,

I get that.

On the other hand there is Ralph Shapey who used the big band sound as a gateway into new music.

That's different.
