Jaga Jazzist is a band from Norway whose style defies categorization beyond the vague label of Nujazz. They began as a mix of big-band {{jazz}} and trip-hop (on ''Grete Stitz''), then they added drum-n-bass and other electronic influences (on ''A Livingroom Hush'' and ''The Stix''). Then they added PostRock (on ''What We Must''), then [[ProgressiveRock prog-]] and math-rock (on ''One-Armed Bandit'').

Added DiffLines:

* SongStyleShift: On ''Starfire'', JJ take advantage of the extended compositions to switch at the drop of a hat from ambient electronic music to psychedelic rock, to clubby electronic music, to jazz horns over programmed beats, and back again. The press release for the album quoted the band: "The idea was that we thought about the songs as both the original song and [[RearrangeTheSong a remix]] in one."

Added DiffLines:

* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition: ''[='=]94 -- '14'', released to celebrate the band's 20th anniversary, is basically an extravagant vinyl reissue of ''A Livingroom Hush'', with a bunch of remixes and new cover art.

* GrowingTheBeard: [[invoked]] Martin Horntveth, in [[http://www.prog-sphere.com/2010/06/09/80/ an interview with Prog-Sphere]], cited ''A Livingroom Hush'' as the album that changed JJ, and which they consider their true debut.



* OldShame: In the aforementioned interview, M. Hornthveth described ''Grete Stitz'' as "fun, but still a bit embarrassing." Tellingly, it's their only album that remains unreleased outside Norway.
