38, I take it 6 does not literally think that all the people who attend these jazz gigs are old, but from a stereotypical point of view, which is how a lot if people judge nowadays (me included) you tend to associate music genres such as jazz with the elderly, hence where 6 was coming from.
People who think that only old people listen to jazz surely haven't heard John Zorn's Moonchild album, or the Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble (or an insane amount of jazz fusion with genres like IDM). Any old hunched-over, undie-shitting, brittle-boned, half-deaf grandpa jamming out to Moonchild is awesome in my book. Or maybe it's just that he's half deaf and can barely distinguish what he's listening to. Regardless, jazz is too vast a genre to even stereotype. Those who can do that clearly don't know squat about what jazz is. Not that anyone really does.
You should have continued.. It just made a dramatic entrance to your performance.. Shoulda been all sexy with it. Lol.
