    I wouldn't say forbidden but Jazz has specific sets of articulation techniques, triple tonguing is not in commonly used. I mean, has anyone ever done it in a jazz recording?

    I’m not sure, I suppose somewhere between 1916 and 1918.

    It's great but it's not a jazz recording.

    How is Uri Caine with Dave Douglas not jazz?

    Dave Douglas and Uri Cain are wonderful jazz players but this example, and I'm pretty flexible on what is and isn't jazz, I wouldn't call jazz. It seems to me to be of a more contemporary, maybe even slightly Kurt Weil-ish, vein. I've heard recorded and live Uri Cain's adaptions of classical themes with jazz elements and you can hear the jazz element in it. I don't hear that in this music.
