Default Mic'n: Rock/Pop vs Jazz

Will you mic a kit for jazz differently than a kit for rock/pop?

I'm asking because in rock/pop, the kick and snare dominate. Not so in jazz.

Most engineers will mic for the application, not according to genre. However, it is typical for more of the kit sound to be driven via the overheads compared to close mix's. All depends on venue & a multitude of other considerations. There is no definitive difference, & everyone has a different approach.

I agree. It's probably more for what you want, rather than genre-based. All you have to do is see how Steve Gadd was mic'ed up for a 'jazz' session with Chick Corea, as opposed to how Joe Morello was mic'ed up for Dave Brubeck. Both 'jazz', but completely different methods of miking.
