I'd opt for unassimilated <jazz> [dZ{z] in Cornish.

How shall we spell this? Welsh has unassimilated <jazz> and assimilated
<jas> with <jasaidd> 'jazzy'.

In Cornish, unassimilated <jazz> is of course possible, but would be
properly italicized in print as a loanword. As an assimilated word =, <jaz>
and <jas> would be pronuounced identically, rhyming with <tas> 'father'. An
adjective <jazek> or <jasek> might be derived for 

'jazzy'.
