Just what are "jazz emotions"?
Was that a commonly understood term, when this story came out (in the 20's)?
Any help with understanding that term would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Vulcans can get jazz emotions. In the teevee series /Star Trek: Enterprise/ an evil Vulcan mind rapist used T'Pol's jazz emotions as a wedge to rape her mind. No, stop, she said, but he would not stop. That episode left me with the impression that jazz emotions are not a good idea. But the jazz in T'Pol's dream memory was chaotic, the atonal kind that just sounds like a whanging headache. Maybe it's different with more musical and less shitty forms of jazz.
