    It sounds Jazz to my ears. But I'm pretty novice about music genres.

    Not jazz - I'd say it's closer to soul or R&B.

    I love this song, I hear it often on the jazz radio station I listen to and on Pandora.

    I'm not a musician or a music historian but to me it's jazz, all the way.

    The band riff and rhythm and the scat singing are pretty jazzy. The intro is kind of more folky blues.

    It has a tint of Big Band instrumental, which sadly overcomes the vocals.
