I want to have it down for the record that I do enjoy fusion from Miles' 70's stuff to Sonny Sharrock to early Gil Evans to many of today's Knitting Factory experimentalists such as John Zorn. Atlantic Jazz: Fusion takes the easy route however and presents us with examples of what gave fusion a bad name. Endless riffing and little substance that does justice to neither rock or jazz. Fusion destroyed jazz by burying it in half baked stereotypes and as a result jazz jumped back to hard bop revisionism. Joe Henderson, Woody Shaw and Donald Byrd and countless other musicians at the time successfully added electric aspects to their music without detracting from its substance (at least at first). This compilation though is heavy on the name dropping and light on the musical integrity.
