JAZZ ROCK/FUSION

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre

Jazz Rock/Fusion definition


  1. Jazz Fusion is jazz that is strongly influenced by other styles of music. Jazz fusion is an ambiguous term that provides the first level sub-set down from Jazz. Jazz rock is a sub-sub set from jazz via jazz fusion. The ambiguity comes from an American tendency through the 90's and until now, to freely interchange jazz rock and jazz fusion, when in fact the latter term covers most hybrids of jazz fused with other forms of music. The roots of jazz rock can be traced back to RnB influenced soul-jazz artists such as Les McCann, Grant Green and Jimmy Smith, and young British jazzers such as Graham Bond, Ginger Baker, John McLaughlin, Jack Bruce, Georgie Fame, who were forced to use electronic instruments because the local club's acoustic instruments were reserved for the older established jazz musicians. Probably the first jazz artists that released recordings that mixed modern rock (circa 60s) with jazz were Larry Coryell, Jeremy Steig, Charles Lloyd, The Soft Machine, and The (Jazz) Crusaders. Meanwhile rock artists such as Cream, Grateful Dead and The Jimi Hendrix Experience were getting a lot of publicity and fame with their lengthy improvisations based on blues, rock, psychedelia and some jazz. These rock artists had an impact on Miles Davis who generated a lot of media attention to this new jazz-rock genre with his Bitches Brew album. From there the genre grew and exploded into numerous different directions. One of these directions was brass rock as exemplified by bands like Dreams, Chicago, BS&T and If. These bands combined elements of jazz, rock and classical music with arrangements for brass and woodwinds.

  2. Many other styles of music have been combined with jazz to create fusion including traditional music from around the world, R'n'B, rock, electronic music and pop music and jazz from Africa, Latin America, India and other places. One of the earliest examples of the use of the term fusion comes from the Indo-jazz fusion of Joe Harriott and John Mayer. Some of the more popular early practitioners of fusion included Weather Report and Herbie Hancock's Sextant. A few years later Shakti appears on the scene and expands the boundaries of fusion further, foreshadowing the World Fusion movement of the 90's.

  3. In part Nu.jazz grew out of the British acid jazz scene of the late 80s and early 90s, whilst modern leaders of nu.fusion cite Miles Davis and Jon Hassell as the godfathers of the genre. As the genre began to develop it took on other influences such as world beat/jazz fusion, psychedelic trip-hop, post-rock and mixtures of ambience with modern jazz. The jazz with electronia experiments that Jon Hassell was conducting in the late 80's, with the likes of Eno, were to be a major influence especially on the dance side of nu.jazz, sometimes known as nu.fusion. Three main elements make nu.jazz different from the more traditional jazz (rock) fusion. First of all there is less of an emphasis on instrumental virtuosity in nu.jazz (especially nu.fusion). Second, more use of electronics (especially skilled turntablism) and studio trickery that emphasizes sound textures. Third, nu.jazz tends to use more modern rhythms such as drum'n'bass, hip-hop, post-rock, and various mixtures of world beat rhythms. Progressive nu.jazz artists such as Bugge Wesseltoft, Nils Petter Molvaer and the Esbjörn Svensson Trio (E.S.T.), combine complicated compositions with modern rhythms to create new unheard of soundscapes - while the former two are leaders of nu.fusion, and with more emphasis on jazz playing, EST have been the leaders in straighter nu.jazz. Nu.jazz is loosely connected to other newer jazz fusion genres, particularly the more progressive live, jazz jam bands such as Medeski Martin & Wood or Garaj Mahal. It may seem that the only difference between the two genres is the country the artist is from or what scene they came up through.li>

Only the most progressive of nu jazz, jazz-rock and fusion artists are listed on Progarchives, although accceptability or not here may vary from person to person. All artists have elements of progressive rock in their music (e.g. Jean Luc Ponty, Bill Bruford or David Sancious) or they represent the most forward-looking and progressive element in their genre (e.g. Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock or Weather Report). It should be noted that those many Canterbury jazz rock fusion bands, e.g. Soft Machine, Soft Works, Soft Heap, Soft Machine Legacy, Gilgamesh etc. are to be found under the CANTERBURY heading in Prog Archives.

The Infinite Desire
Al DiMeola Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Matti
Prog Reviewer

4 stars The American jazz/fusion guitarist and composer Al DiMeola seems to get the best PA ratings for his earliest albums from the latter half of the 70's. I'm familiar with only a small bunch of his albums, and less so with the early ones. Anyway, I quite enjoy this particular album with a rather lukewarm reception here.

The contributors pretty much vary from track to track, keyboardist Rachel Z clearly being the most consistent one. Al himself uses a great variety of instruments on this electric and accessible album entirely composed by him. 'Beyond the Mirage' is a very nice opener. There's a shadow of digitally programmed over-production in sight, but due to rich and energetic playing full of fine, fast melodies the outcome stays positive. The next, mellower piece has some world music flavour and reminds me of Pat Metheny, my fave jazz musician.

Overall there is plenty of sonic and atmospheric variety, and while some tracks out of twelve may not be so interesting, and some are perhaps slightly too long, the 67 minutes mostly go very pleasantly. Unlike another reviewer, I generally enjoy the peaceful compositions such as the romantic title track and the brief, acoustic 'Azzura'.

On the aptly titled 'Race With Devil on Turkish Highway' DiMeola gets into an el.guitar battle with Steve Vai. Things like that keep the more energy-favouring listeners awake. The cool trumpet samples on 'Valentina' are by DiMeola. Tha album closes with a vocal version of the title track, sung by Pino Daniele. My biggest complaint concerns the sound of programmed percussion which is too much present. Drummers Peter Erskine and Ernie Adams appear only on two tracks each. But despite that I warmly recommend this album to listeners of guitar oriented fusion and artists such ad Pat Metheny.

Beneath the Mask
Chick Corea Elektric Band Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by sgtpepper

4 stars This album is closer to fusion than "Inside out", plenty of great synth soloing. The band plays tight, no wonder since they have played together for a couple of years. There isn't anything revolutionary on the album, it's just a well executed piece of music with soft but also fast- paced pieces. As on almost every album, you can find some Latin jazz moments, such as on the hilarious "Illusions" at the end. Contains great solos on electric piano. "One of us is over 40" has a bit of reggae feeling. not so common for jazz. "Lifescape" has nice smooth fusion licks by guitar. "Charged particle" reminds of RTF slightly, great guitar playing and quite a dynamic piece.

Inside Out
Chick Corea Elektric Band Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by sgtpepper

3 stars Inside out is an interesting album, the band's name is Elektric Band but Corea mainly uses piano. He does it very well - that's his strongest ability, after all. Piano playing is brilliant and caught up by no less virtuoso drums, bass and guitar - listen to "Make a wish Part 2" which is a pretty dynamic affair.

It's true that there is a strong post-bop feel but drums sound rockish and synths also get in a contemporary feeling. Also, music changes frequently. The only truly fusion composition is the last piece "Tale of Daring" that has soft and wild moments, all going crazy with their instruments.

Review by sgtpepper

3 stars Return to Forever part 2? Not really, as the contemporary fusion and jazz have changed with less focus on virtuosity and more of overall feeling. It's nice to hear Chick jumping on the wagon again and providing electronic keyboards again.

The record is of average quality, there are some colorless moments with no feeling but also more introspective pieces. Playing is very good, maybe I'd wish to hear a bit more guitar. Compositions are definitely below RTF average, more about mood than concrete motives.

For me, the highlights are "King Cockroach" with good RTF-like playing and dynamics, then "Silver Temple" has some killer bass and drums but is also slightly incoherent.

Chicago Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by sgtpepper

2 stars Having lost Peter Cetera, proved to be more challenging than expected as at this stage of career, no other band member could compete with his compositions. Lamm was the closest one, then Champlin. No wonder they found a singer that had a similar voice to Cetera but failed in other music qualities.

Apart from 1-2 songs, it's quite a mediocre album, relying on the 80's sound with minimal horns, heavy synths and poor maybe uninspired songwriting. For me, it is their weakest album until its release in 1986 and regret buying it. The flawed cover of their own cover says it all. Don't waste your time here.

Chicago Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by sgtpepper

2 stars The peak of Chicago popularitu and thankfully also their best album of the 80's. Synths, which are all over the place, are very tasty and that has become the main component followed by the guitar and some horns in the background. Not sure how the three original horn players were happy about that. Cetera shows great singing and melodies are great without sounding too slick. Production work is top notch, arrangements too. In terms of music complexity, it is below the previous albums. "Remember the feeling" and "You're the inspiration" are top ballads from the Chicago repertoire even if dominated by synths which is not typical for Chicago.

Not really anything for the old fans apart from the vocals but pop/rock lovers with love this a lot.

Review by sgtpepper

2 stars The transformation of Chicago to the new-wave and 80's begun with the new producer and change of their sound. Music ideas are quite good in general, drums sound quite different and synths compete with more subdued horns.

Compositions are generally medium to strong and even though there's less space for jazz than ever, there are still moments when horns take over. The best contrast is on the strong "Hard to say I'm sorry" which has the perfect (for the year 1982) instrumental workout wher etha lads finally shine a bit. Synths are contementary without taking over. Pop highlights include "Love me tomorrow" and "Rescue me".

However, for most orthodox fans, this is a turning point where things were getting way too streamlined.

Chicago XIV
Chicago Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by sgtpepper

2 stars Much stronger that the previous two and even better than the previous 3 albums, Chicago reached the first bottom in 1979 to make a small comeback. Disco elements are gone and solid musicianship is on display. The opener "Manipulation" is one of the best openers of the recent albums - energetic and virtuosic - keyboards, horns. The ballads are pretty good and sung by Cetera, I like "Song for you" in particular.

"Hold on" is one of their best hard-rocking numbers, I like the edgy voice by Cetera, especially around the mid section.

The record fares well even in the course of time.

Chicago 13
Chicago Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by sgtpepper

1 stars 13 certainly wasn't the lucky number for Chicago but not exactly a disaster either. The disco fashion was raving and Chicago decided to embrace it with all they have. The first track "Street player" says it all - very dated and commercial track although a good melody and horn arrangements saving it from being a complete flop. For disco lovers - hit on the nail!

"Mama take" is one of the more late 70's Chicago songs without being too dated now. Hard rock is represented by "Must have been crazy" and even "Window dreamin'" with pretty convincing guitar. "Paradise Alley" is a filler, no single thing to praise here. "Aloha mama" seems like a nostalgia track and successfully escapes disco. "Loser with a broken heart" is the ballad of this album, soaring melody and organ in the background.

Not enough for a band of such calibre.

Hot Streets
Chicago Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by sgtpepper

2 stars The album can arguably divide listeners among those who like the liveliness and friendliness of the record and those who complain about listening to non-ambitious music by seasoned musicians with more potential. After the original guitar player's death, we have a new replacement who shows himself in the good light with some delicious guitar licks but never overshadowing the original members.

Cetera has now become the most prolific singer contributing to radio friendliness.

The good hits are "No tell lover" or "The greatest love" that have the contemporary beat but still pretty good horns. "Little Miss Lovin'" is a surprising choice given the new guitar player - it rocks harder than usual.

The highlights for more ambitious listeners is the technical "Hot streets" where all players exceed their usual standard on the record. Also the drummer sets a great non-regular rhythm and fill-ins. But also "Take a chance" is pretty good - tasty guitar and percussions/drums pleasing.

Chicago still have something to offer at this point.
