Fusion

By the early 1970's, the
term "Fusion" had come
to identify a mixture of
Jazz improvisation with
the energy and new
rhythms of Rock music.
To the dismay of many
Jazz purists, some of Jazz
most significant innovators
crossed over from the
contemporary Hardbop
into Fusion.
Eventually
commercial
influences
succeeded in
undermining its
original
innovations. While
it is arguable that
this fusion
benefited the
evolution of
Rock, few of its
influences remain
in today's Jazz.
