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.
