I dunno, bands like Chicago, BS & T, If, Chase, The Flock.....they are fusions of rock and jazz, surely...but they strike me as a different type of music than those I'd normally call "Fusion" bands--MO, WR, RTF, etc.

Also, Don Ellis.......there's some rock influence, but somehow this stuff is on the periphery for me.

..and those Sting albums...well....

I like 'em.  I wouldn't call 'em Fusion, though.   For that matter, I don't call Steely Dan fusion either.


Perhaps this gets more to the question of what exactly Fusion is, anyway.

Actually, there's a thread for that, too: http://fuze-zone.com/forum/index.php/topic,36.0.html
....lame-ass, jive, pseudo bluesy, out-of-tune, noodling, wimped out, fucked up playing....

Everything ever done by Joe Zawinul ...
Joe Zawinul's Syndicate should be primo on the list ... he is a major father of fusion ... cannot, & should not be ignored ...
Other then the mention of Weather Report, I'm really surprised he isn't on any of these lists
(if he is, I must have missed it ...)

Hey! welcome back.

Most of the solo Joe Z CDs are on Geoff's list on the first page. His solo stuff doesn't get the attention that WR did.

The "wooden" posts have already been deleted.  Woodn't you like to know why? Rather stiff and
board at the moment.
