Do any critics know that "Great American Songbook" does not equal "Jazz?"

A critic for the Wrongington Post wrote an article about how pop stars have done "Jazz albums," like rod Stewart, Linda Ronstadt and Bob Dylan.

He knows they are jazz albums because they sing songs written by composers like Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and etc., which are Jazz songs.

He also said that Miles Davis crossed over into pop by playing "These are a Few of my Favorite Things," which is not a Jazz song.
