Fusion: Music Defying Definition
Fusion is a musical category no one has been able to define because it contains so many diverse artists. Basically, in 1969, it was coined to mean a fusion of jazz and rock. By 1970, it came to mean anything that was successful and pure jazz audiences hated. The audio examples on this NPR piece glimpse the diversity of what was going on in the ‘70s. Fusion continues and has exploded its boundaries well beyond the music created 30 years ago.
