Description

When jazz decided to plug in during the late 1960s, the fusion of jazz improvisation and strong drum grooves was pioneered by influential artists such as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and Tony Williams. Iconic fusion bands Return to Forever, Mahavishnu Orchestra and Weather Report have morphed into modern incarnations like Tribal Tech and Hiromi. Electric jazz also jumped genres into rock, with Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell and progressive metal groups enshrining their own versions in music history. WAAPA’s Jazz students take us on an experimental journey of jazz fusion’s most famous works, combined with rock, electric instruments, and plenty of grooves.
