Jazz is the seventh studio album by the British rock band Queen. It was released on 10 November 1978 by EMI Records in the United Kingdom and by Elektra Records in the United States. The album's varying musical styles were alternately praised and criticised.

This grouping collects all versions of the "Jazz" album, originally released in 1978 on vinyl and tape, as well as its subsequent repressings and re-issues. Interestingly, some territories retitled the album as "Bicycle Race" and even changed the sleevework. Officially, the entire back catalogue was re-issued for the first time on CD in 1986, and again on CD/tape in remastered form in 1991 for the US market (via Hollywood Records and adding a few non-album tracks or remixes not included on the original versions).

Jazz is the seventh studio album by British rock band Queen, released on 10 November 1978. Roy Thomas Baker temporarily reunited with the band and became their producer; it was three years since he co-produced their 1975 album A Night at the Opera, but this album also was the last he co-produced for the band. It reached in the UK Albums Chart and on the US Billboard 200.

Jazz adalah album studio ketujuh band rok asal Inggris Queen. Album ini dirilis pada 10 November 1978 oleh EMI Records di Inggris dan oleh Elektra Records di Amerika Serikat. Album ini diproduseri oleh Roy Thomas Baker, yang mana sampul albumnya dicetuskan oleh Roger Taylor, yang pernah melihat gambar serupa di Tembok Berlin. Album meraih posisi peringkat kedua di UK Albums Chart dan peringkat ke-enam di Billboard 200 Amerika Serikat. Jazz terjual lima juta kopi di seluruh dunia.

Arguably (quite arguably), Jazz is Queen’s most interesting and fun album. The eclectic set of 13 songs showcases each of the four member’s distinct songwriting style. Overall, the album offers a sleek and slick array of confident songcraft and studio prowess. None of the tunes veer into jazz, the musical genre. The album’s title may refer to jazz as the phrasal verb, as defined in the Oxford Dictionary, to make something more interesting, lively, or exciting.

With the album ready to go, Queen, along with Elektra and EMI, threw one of rock’s most lavish parties. Held in New Orleans, the entertainment included – naked female mud-wrestlers, dwarfs, fire-eaters, jazz and steel bands, Zulu dancers, voodoo dancers, strippers, drag artists and unicyclists. Released on 10 November 1978, Jazz was the band’s longest album to that point. It went Platinum in the US, and their love for that country was cemented with another winter tour that took them from Dallas to Inglewood and then home to Britain in time for Christmas. British audiences wouldn’t see them for quite a while, but as usual, it was worth the wait.

The guitar orchestrations and vocal harmonies break down into total silliness on Jazz, in all its fascinating cover art and fat bottomed glory. The wild diversity (rock, pop, metal, Arabian themed openers and even disco adorned tracks) and animated excitement the band gets from it is what made critics hate it, and ironically, what makes it hold up today. It stands out as such a good time (Don't Stop Me Now, Fun It, If You Can't Beat Them) mostly because you can tell the band had a good time making it. Running around, smashing insane arrangements on each song as a dare (Bicycle Race), and laughing as they wrote down each eye-opening lyric. Crucial thing missing: despite the title and alternating themes, there is no actual jazz on the album.
This album is one of the most specials for me of Queen's career. Has so many things that make it unique: thousands of guitars, rock-metal vibe, absurd humour and extra-diversity. The beginning with the arab non-sense song Mustapha, the craziness of Bicycle Race, the fun of Fat Bottomed Girls, the energy of Don't Stop Me Now... also at some points the album gets too weird, like on disco song Fun It, which I hate, but this record deserves more attention and more success because it's one of the most creative, innovative and inspired of Queen's production.
Jazz continues the theme of prior releases by mixing multiple songwriting styles. Like the beatles in some ways, this is where Queen gets their strength. If you're a Queen fan like me, that's exactly why you find them so entertaining. From the opening jocularity of Mustapha, which I dig (check Roger's ferocious chops on this), to the disco infused Fun It, to the blistering rocker Dead on Time, to the completely original Bicycle Race, and back to the melancholy ballads like Leaving Home Aint Easy, it's all good fun, and all sounds like Queen, no matter who wrote the tune. Few bands can pull this off and still sound cohesive. This was the last album to include a bit of the campy vaudevillian style that they honed to perfection, and is exactly why their later releases are not considered classic Queen. Even The Game, with all it's megahits, marked the turning point of what Queen was, to what they would become. The last of the truly classic Queen releases. Highly recommended.
Wild! I think with Queen, there's no middle ground either you love them or hate them. With a hi-end stereo, i have a new appreciation of their sonic blast. On this lp, the songs, the structures, the tempos, Freddie's singing all go wild. I love all the sounds giving my speakers a real work-out. I don't know any other mainstream rock group packs so much creativity into one giant wallop. Eccentric, yet accessible & fun, no one blends pop & rock in their extremes like Queen.
Jazz was Queen's celebration album. They had come on so strong so fast, and excess was beginning to influence the music. One look at the titles of the songs and you can sense the band is in full form in both confidence and swagger. In places, Jazz may be Queen's most indulgent album, as it veers into several different genres snd styles, but it has its moments of reflection, which makes it a varied listen. Key tracks are Fat Bottomed Girls, Bicycle Race, Let Me Entertain You, and Don't Stop Me Now.
With Roy Thomas Baker again they deliver another great album...is their more bombastic,fun and silly since ''Opera'' and one of my favourites!The singles are pure genius,and rockers like ''Mustapha'' and ''Dead on Time'' are a riot.''Jealousy'' is a beatiful ballad who deserves more radio play..Sadly,the two Roger's songs prevents this of the 5-stars rating.Many people (specially in America)hates this band just because the singer was gay,or they're too-much european musically or because their songs had ''no substance''I think these people missed the point...glam rock is all about to shock,to have fun and had a good laugh...not ALL the songs in the world should be like ''Imagine''or''Blowin in the Wind''.Diversity EXISTS people...
News of the World was Queen's Best album but like Woody Allen's Annie Hall, it also represented a change in direction. In this case, Queen moved away from mad choral rock to a singer-fronting-a-band format that would ultimately ruin the band and lead it to ruinous albums like Hot Space. Jazz has some very good songs, but it was, at that time, the least interesting thing they'd put out (A Day at the Races was a worse album, but still a more interesting one). It feels less like an album than a collection of songs. This was even more pronounced in the following album, The Game, after which Queen became too hit and miss to pay any attention to.
On Jazz, Queen's formula had been getting a bit long in the tooth. The title is somewhat misleading since nothing on this record remotely resembles jazz music. It is a shortened title of Roger Taylor's song All of that Jazz, an excellent tune that closes the album. Perhaps a more appropriate title would have been Taylor's other song, Fun it, since most of this album's nonsensical lyrics are really a celebration of good times. After all, it's hard to figure out why Freddie Mercury was inspired to sing about a bicycle race, a rewrite of Somebody to Love, except that riding a bicycle can be fun! Ditto that single's double-A flip side, Fat Bottom Girls, which also celebrates good times with big bottomed women. Don't Stop Me Now, one of the album's best tunes, is really about not stopping Freddie from having a good time. If You Can't Beat Them and Let me Entertain You continue the theme. Dead on Time was inspired by Queen classic Keep Yourself Alive and John Deacon's excellent In Only Seven Days follows. Brian May's Leaving Home Ain't Easy is also one of the album's highlights. Persian sung Islamic prayer Mustapha was released as a single, but was unsuccessful, as was the somewhat languid Jealousy. The horrible Dreamer's Ball was the band's last foray into music hall, an unfortunate infatuation that produced the band's worst music. All told, this was a successful album with plenty of good songs; however, the lyrics were sometimes frivolous and the other albums since Queen II were more successfully executed.
