Jazz is a genre I respect a lot because it takes talent. Jazz and metal have several things in common: both are among the genres with the most complex music, both put a great emphasis on musicianship and technical aspects of the performance, i.e. how difficult it is to play a solo or do the vocals. Not only metal but also jazz offers some amazing guitar work. Several metal guitarists often use jazz tunes and techniques in their solos.
