What is Jazz Fusion?
Jazz fusion, fusion, or jazz-rock is a musical fusion genre that developed from mixing funk and R&B rhythms and the amplification and electronic effects of rock music,, complex time signatures derived from non-Western music and extended, typically instrumental compositions with a jazz approach to lengthy group improvisations, often using wind and brass and displaying a high level of instrumental technique. The term “jazz rock” is often used as a synonym for “jazz fusion” as well as for music performed by late 1960s and 1970s-era rock bands that added jazz elements to their music.” – Wikipedia
I grew up in the 1970s in the era of 35 cents a gallon gasoline, big bore engines, the end of the Vietnam war and Richard Nixon. Another thing I grew up with is the sounds of jazz-rock. At the time I just knew it as “the music with the funky sound.” Eventually I realized there was a label to put to it. There were musicians who had combined two of my favorite types of music and called it “Jazz fusion.” If you have listened to show 17 and like some of the music excerpts you here look up some of the spectacular sounds of the musicians that came out of this era and this genre.
