"Jazz is a lean and athletic music, unobsessed with romantic or commercial love. It shuns sentimentality and the languors of romantic desire. It demands monastic and arduous devotion from its practitioners, and when it deals with sex, does so frankly, without shame or furtiveness. While avoiding invidious comparisons, it is scarcely necessary to point out the erotic basis and quality of much revered Romantic music. There are examples like the Tristan und Isolde Liebestod, the Verklärte Nacht of Schoenberg, and many a church Mass, in which the amorous content, enfolded in sensuous textures, even if unrecognized, is none the less gratefully and luxuriously yielded to by most listeners."--Shining Trumpets, a History of Jazz (1946) by Rudi Blesh, p. 200
