It's extremely niche, and it has a very distinct tone and style that can heavily alter the experience.

I mean, I love 80s rock just as much as Hirohiko Araki, but the genre isn't really a good fit for most anime.

You obviously haven't listened to Precious Heart, the jazziest video game song ever with lots of energy.

Some older posts, well its quite hard to make jazz music and make it fit well with everything else it mostly have set a theme for it.

Because the genre was popular back in the 60's or something.

Most of its fans are dead, or very old.

Like people have mentioned already, Jazz is a dying art. I love jazz, and is one of the reasons why the Evangelion ost is my favorite. Jazz used to be popular, but now it just seems to be appreciated by musicians and the like.

Aye there definitely is a lack of good jazz soundtracks in anime as it tends to be dominated by unknown rock/metal with a dash of shit dubstep.

Thank you for dismissing my suggestion by acting like a grumpy old fart. Afaik, hating on jazz is still pure ignorance. Heck, I most likely listened to jazz and developed better music appreciation before you even reached puberty; it must suck to be you.

Yeah Cowboy BeBop just kicked the bar so high everybody else just sat the fuck down and cried. We used to have a radio station that had lounge music, that was pretty neat.

There are some anime with jazz or jazzy OSTs, pretty few and far between though.
