Has Mike recorded anything you think could be described as Jazz?

What is the folkiest piece of shorter music he has done? (post duo with sister!;).

I guess it depends on your definition of jazz. "Charleston" on Platinum sounds like jazz is most people understand it. But I understand that any kind of improvisation can be considered as jazz. So the answer either way is "yes".

Music from the Balcony has two short, quite remarkable segments of free jazz, at 6m43s and 16m08s respectively. I'm no big fan of free jazz, but would have loved to hear more from Mike in this particular style!

Oh yes, I forgot about that. Also "Music for the Video Wall" then. At this rate Mike will have to buy a striped shirt and bowler hat (or one of them funny hats wot jazz singers wear - I know nothing about hats)  :D
