CHRISTGAU CONSUMER GUIDE

Fusion music—jazzz, as one tipsheet has taken to spelling it—combines the worst of both styles. From rock, we get sound-effect solos and neat-to-cute commercial structures; from jazz, instrumental technique so obsessive that trick meters are expected to do the work of a good beat and content is excluded altogether.

January 1, 1981
