Short for "Jazz Life"; or basically the lifestyle of any professional freelance musician. A person making a living as a sideman in the music industry, and is always working the opposite schedule of everyone else in society, thus living the jife.
"Hey how was your weekend?"
"Shit man, I had a show friday and saturday night, a brunch gig saturday afternoon, two rehearsals, and my church gig all day sunday. I'm exhausted."
"Yeah dude, that's the jife for you. Maybe we can chill tuesday?"
"Sure, my tuesday is totally free."
