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.

Stranice Naseg Vremena
Smak Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Whilst I preferred the more instrumental take that Smak would take on 1980's Za?to ne volim sneg, this release does at least benefit from some nice vocals from Boris Arandjelovic.

Buyer beware: there was an English-language version of this album issued called Dab In the Middle, notable for cover art which looked like a rejected idea for a Scorpions cover. That version is best avoided, because the translation of the lyrics was slipshod and Arandjelovic clearly struggled to deliver the lyrics in English (which is perfectly understandable - singing outside of your native language is *hard*). The tragic thing is that the translation really wasn't necessary - you don't need to understand the words here to appreciate Arandjelovic's beautiful performance in his own, more comfortable mother language, and I would in fact set his performance here next to those of the greatest vocalists of the Italian prog scene - there's the same command of both operatic majesty and delicate nuance.

Under The Sun
Nucleus Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

3 stars This 1974 release from Ian Carr and his collaborators proves that as far as Nucleus goes, there truly is nothing new under the sun. It's not that this is a bad album - on the contrary, it's a pretty decent jazz-rock workout. It's just that it isn't really doing anything we haven't already heard the group do with a bit more verve and passion on the group's earlier albums. Where a mere four to five years earlier Nucleus had been ahead of the curve when it comes to this sort of material, here they're sat solidly in the middle of the road, with the end result that you probably don't want to go out of your way to obtain this unless you really can't get enough of the band's sound.

Bremen 1974
Missus Beastly Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Igor91

4 stars Missus Beastly's "Bremen 1974" is, in my opinion, their best release. This may be hard to believe, considering that it is a live recording from 1974 that was not released until almost 30 years after their final studio album. But this is an incredible, jammy, jazzrock recording that should get more attention.

I'm not really a huge fan of Missus Beastly's other releases, including their wildly different debut, but this one really grabs me. It's loose, yet tight at the same time, and is the only recording of splendid guitarist Eddy Marron's participation in the band. His excellent guitar work soars on this release and leaves one to wonder what the band's subsequent releases may have sounded like if he had stayed on. The album features 3 long, jam-heavy tracks, each one different from the other. The songs incorporate jazzrock, ethnic flourishes, psychedelia, and funk into a masterful live performance. Highly recommended for fans of German jazzrock from that era! 4 stars.

The Winterfold Collection 1978 - 1986
Bill Bruford Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars This single CD compilation is the companion to the Summerfold collection. While that concentrates on 1987 ? 2008 and 12 releases, this is 1978 ? 1986 from six albums. With musicians such as Allan Holdsworth, Jeff Berlin and Patrick Moraz on board there is no surprise that here is music of the highest order. Although not fully jazz, there are still huge elements of that within the progressive style that is on display. What impresses me so much about this album is that Bill doesn't feel the need to be at the front over-riding the rest of the guys. This feels very much a band as opposed to a drummer with some hired guns to provide the melody. The impression is that improvisation was taking place in the studio, with musicians all on the same wavelength and it is certainly no surprise that from this he moved more and more into a 'pure' jazz style.

Of the two sets this is probably the one that will be most accessible to those who may not normally listen to jazz, but in reality they are both essential listening and a great guide to the music of someone who to many will always be associated with prog giants such as King Crimson or Yes. The booklet is well written, extremely informative with plenty of photos.

Bill Bruford Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars This double CD brings together music from 12 albums released on the label between 1987 and 2008, 22 songs in all. Those looking for progressive rock workouts should turn their attention to the companion Winterfold release as what we have here is jazz in its' truest and many forms. While there have been important jazz drummers since the scene started to be made available in a recorded format, Gene Krupa being of course the most notable, there is no doubt that in recent times Bill has made a claim to being the most important player in the scene. This is not only due to his playing and songwriting, or his ability to bring together great musicians, but also due to the history he brings with him. Many people have been turned onto jazz who originally were fans of his from his progressive rock days, and have followed him on the journey and stayed the course.

Prior to this collection I had heard little of the output from this label, but the collection has been put together with care, showing the many sides of Bruford and his take on the genre. There are big band arrangements through to more simpler bands set ups, although still providing the complexity and spontaneity that this music needs. The booklet is extremely informative and in many ways this is the perfect introduction to the jazz side of Bruford and certainly has led me to want to find out more.

Land Of The Midnight Sun
Al Di Meola Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Progfan97402

4 stars I seem to remember back in 1994 (I was 21 at the time) a couple of people mentioning me Al Di Meola, but his name at the time was in one ear and out the other. It's not that I didn't want to know, it was the name was a bit difficult to remember at the time. I already knew who Chick Corea was, and I believe I just heard about Return to Forever. Of course once I actually became aware of his name, it stuck, and I was thinking that's who was being brought up to me in '94. For a while I gave up on fusion, thought it was just flash and no substance, probably because I wanted something a bit more prog leaning. But since that time I came to terms and started finding a tons of great gems. Return to Forever's Romantic Warrior was one, the first two Mahavishnu Orchestra albums, Les McCann's Openness to Invitation (even many progheads who like fusion should enjoy this one), Billy Cobham's Spectrum, Lenny White's Venusian Summer, and many more. Land of the Rising Sun is the solo debut from Al Di Meola, released right after Romantic Warrior. On this album Lenny White, Stanley Clarke, and even Chick Corea makes an appearance here, also Steve Gadd, Mingo Lewis, Alphononse Mouzon, and Jaco Pastorius, amongst others. "The Wizard" sounds like a cross between Santana and Romantic Warrior-era RTF, which is little surprise given Mingo Lewis had been a member of Santana. The title track is more or less the same, but then he diverts with the next two. "Sarabande from Violin Sonata in B Minor" which is just an unaccompanied Bach piece with Di Meola playing said piece of guitar. "Love Them From Pictures of the Sea" is a spacy number, Stanley Clarke actually provides some vocals, and one might expect some inappropriate R&B type of number, Clarke totally avoids that vocal style. "Suite - Golden Dawn" is a real highlight, with extended jamming, a bit of a Santana thing going on, with Jaco Pastorius being ever busy on his bass. "Short Tales of the Black Forest" is basically him and Chick Corea, all acoustic, no electric guitars or electric pianos here, Chick Corea providing standard piano, Di Meola providing acoustic guitar. It has a bit of a Spanish flamenco thing going on, which isn't any surprise given Chick Corea frequently recorded Spanish-influenced albums (most obvious being My Spanish Heart).

I've heard great things about this album, and I'm ever so glad to have this in my collection, it really is great.

Brutopianisti
Utopianisti Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by siLLy puPPy
Collaborator PSIKE Team

4 stars UTOPIANISTI is quite the unique act and one with which i have become quite the fan in relatively short time based solely on 2016's stellar performances on "The Third Frontier" which found a new lease on the whole jazz-rock fusion meets brutal avant-prog thing. This project is led by the multi-instrumentalist Markus Pajakkala who specializes in saxophones, flutes, clarinets, keys and percussion. While on previous albums which consisted of whole ensembles of musicians churning out quirky rhythms and Rock In Opposition melodies, the newest release BRUTOPIANISTI seems to be more of a solo project by Pajakkala with only a handful of extras on board helping out in expanding the vocal range along with a few synth parts. Instrumentally speaking this is basically the Markus Pajakkla show as he plays drums, bass clarinet, soprano sax, xylophone and various flutes.

If you are expecting another slice of that ridiculously, superbly orchestrated avant-prog dancing in the jazz-fusion arenas of prog heaven then look elsewhere because this album goes in a completely different direction and displays a modern day trend of a quickening that is increasingly blurring the lines between metal, jazz, prog rock and ethnic world music. This music slaps you on the face from the very first frenetic drumbeats of "Gróyul Ghóul Ghò" which combine a frenetic grindcore metal groove with Tuvan style throat singing as well as death metal growls! Despite the extreme metal feel to the whole thing, there are no signs of either guitar or bass guitar in the mix as the bass clarinet and other wind instruments pick up the rhythmic aspects of the music while screams, growls and other strange vocal utterings decorate the soundscape. This short little release barely clocks in over the half hour mark but packs a punch in its ruthless intensity and power punk attack.

While all this craziness unfolds, it sounds like the sax, flutes and bass clarinet borrow a lot from world influences ranging from Klezmer to traditional Chinese music as well as the aforementioned throat singing performed like a pro by Sampo Salonen. While the drums sound totally programed, it actually adds another layer of strangeness to the overall sound as it makes me think of such electronic wizards as Amon Tobin or other IDM (intelligent dance music) artists like Squarepusher (showing off his indietronica talents from his other project Poutatorvi). Between the metal intensity of the vocals, the electronic relentlessness along side with brutal avant-prog time signatures laced with swinging jazzy melodies and ethnic undertones with psychedelic twists and turns, we're left with a very demanding listen indeed but not one that is too alienating even upon first listen. There is a firm sense of balance on BRUTOPIANISTI as not to overwhelm the listener with too much at any given moment.

BRUTOPIANISTI is certainly a curve ball thrown at us in the discography of UTOPIANISTI, not only in terms of how quickly it was released after the previous album as prog oriented artists of this magnitude often take many years to polish new albums into perfection, but also in how utterly different it is from their previous offerings. I would imagine that for those who don't take a liking to this one because it strays too far too fast from the previous efforts will probably be assured that this will not likely be the style that Pajakkala intends to continue ad infinitum but rather a playful little side project that needed to be released. Be assured for as different as this album is, it is chock full of brilliant ideas mixing and melding their way into pure brilliance. Tracks such as "Hóllò" deliver a percussive beat that sounds like a warehouse of fireworks that caught on fire with lysergic ambience mellowing it out and "Zhími Bàgi Dá" with death metal growls and bass clarinet quickly morphing into an elves' LSD party on Neptune sounds as otherworldly as the fictional language titles. This is truly bizarre stuff that will either reel you in instantly like an unfortunate bass on Lake Michigan or repel you like a mosquito from freshly deeted body in the malaria zone. Either way you won't think that you've heard this before even from UTOPIANISTI itself but regardless it will leave some sort of impression. For me, i'm digging this one a lot!

Body Meta ( as Ornette Coleman)
Ornette Coleman & Prime Time Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by snobb
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars originally written for www.jazzmusicarchives.com

Ornette Coleman was the one among a few jazzmen who started playing what later has been titled "a new thing" still in late 50s. His album "Free Jazz" gave the tag for all new jazz direction which dramatically changed genre's scene for decades to come. Still at the late 60s-early 70s it looked Ornette got stuck in his music(his excellent "Science Fiction" from 1972 is an exception only confirming the sentence).

Fortunately for us jazz lovers he did it again - in late 70s Ornette returned back with new jazz revolution again. His new quintet came all-electric this time - two(!) guitarists, bassist and unorthodox drummer Ronald Shannon Jackson beside of Coleman himself. The music,if still rooted in early free jazz, was seriously different and at the moment sounded extremely modern and non-conventional at the same time. Influenced by some time's influential trends, Ornette's new music was closer to jazz fusion, or better to say - free funk still staying within jazz idiom.

First ever recorded example of Ornette's new music has been released on their "Dancing in Your Head"(1977) - 31 minute-short LP which contained only one true new band's composition "Theme From A Symphony" (which initially has been planned as EP release) and completed with four-and-half minute "Midnight Sunrise" world fusion piece,recorded with Master Musicians of Jajouka. Then in 1978 same band releases "Body Meta" - true first full album of "harmolodic" jazz. Five compositions, almost forty minutes of excellent energetic and free mix of groovy pulsation, drummers acrobatics and extremely inspired and focused Coleman sax soloing, one among best in his career.

Comparing with many recordings,released by Coleman and his followers later, "Body Meta" has one big advantage - because of permanent changes of tunes and rhythmical structures whole album doesn't sound all that much repetitive and initial fresh and positive impression doesn't change to boredom after first fifteen-twenty minutes of listening.

Coltrane (and his collaborators/followers) will develop and explore this new for the time sound for decades to come but "Body Meta" still will stay one of style cornerstone album in jazz history.

Befour (with the Trinity)
Brian Auger Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by poito

3 stars This album is one of the earlier works in jazz-fusion rock, it comes from the times when so many styles were given birth. Obviously jazz was already a granpa of the music, but the irreverent sixties wouldn't stop in front of purists and tried about everything. When the electric guitar and the Hammond organ raged, it was probably an anticipated move that jazz would mix with fresher airs. You know, a rolling stone gathers no moss. Brian Auger is a gifted keyboardist. Didn't listen much of his work, but this album is all about him. By and large, the best track is Listen Here, which has a Soft Machine rhythm and a great work by guitar player Gary Boyle. The album would have been a masterpiece if he had been allowed more participation. It is clear in this track that both together would have blown it all. There is an Adagio that reminds to Bach (how else) and obviously inspired the band Focus in the theme Father Bach of their 75 album. There are nice virtuoso organ excerpts, although the themes lack a bit of spark for my taste. The Listen Here is by itself enough to give it a listen.

Bruford: One Of A Kind
Bill Bruford Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by poito

4 stars 3.5 Jazz fusion is always a difficult music, not for all ears. I admire what these guys can do. No doubt this genre is a corner where very talented musicians meet to explore new avenues. I would say this is music for musicians. If you are not a fan of jazz-rock and it happens you drop by this album, it is likely you won't be very much hooked. The lack of melodies in this particular set makes it harsh for occasional listeners. I need some melody too for my brain to remind it; otherwise, it comes and goes, as a dish of exotic food that you'll probably never taste again. It is difficult to enjoy it on the run. One thing is true, for the time being, there are some elements pushing jazz rock ahead, but not much, anyway. I liked more what The Soft Machine and Weather Report were doing in mid-70's. My favorite tracks are The Abindong Chasp, Fainting In Coils, and Forever Until Sunday. But for my proggy taste the more interesting track is the closing The Sahara of Snow, a two part theme that blends recognizable styles that remind of JL Ponty, King Crimson, Soft Machine and Pat Metheny. By the way, Bruford is in my view the weakest part of the set in this album. He is OK, but faints behind the efforts made here by other gifted musicians like Holdsworth, Stewart and Berlin.
