The Impromptu struck me with a flavor of jazz or blues!! Classical-Jazz crossover??

This is the first time I hear of similar music.

Really?

Here's some Gershwin (3 Preludes)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jW2l0BxDqMM

And some Ravel (Violin Sonata, 2nd Movement "Blues")
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvadPqgZc2A&feature=related

And some more Gershwin (Rhapsody in Blue)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-ocsuFv0Sc

And some Shostakovich (Jazz Suite)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=js8wAir87gE

And of course, the middle section of Rzewski's Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues:

since I couldn't find these on YouTube, you could read about

Stravinsky's rags:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piano-Rag-Music

And William Grant Still's "Afro-American" Symphony:
