Jazz is the seventh studio album by British rock band Queen, released in November 1978. Roy Thomas Baker temporarily reunited with Queen and became their producer; it was three years since he co-produced Queen’s 1975 album A Night at the Opera, but this album also was the last he co-produced for the band. The album’s varying musical styles were alternately praised and criticised.
It reached No.2 in the UK Albums Chart and No. 6 on the US Billboard 200, and it was subject to a viciously scathing Rolling Stone review by Dave Marsh, which included the suggestion that “Queen may be the first truly fascist rock band”.
