High Jingo is a jazz tune composed by Lee Konitz  and often performed by Art Pepper , as well as the name of a 1982 album featuring both musicians.

It is also a slang term for a situation that is highly politicized or otherwise fraught with danger. In police work, a case with high jingo on it meant there was special attention being paid by the top brass of the department, the mayor, the Police Commission, or someone else capable of making trouble. An officer working on such a case need to be extra careful in saying or doing anything that might be career jeopardizing.
