Jazz Fusion is a style of jazz that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It features instruments not typically heard in jazz, such as synthesizers and electric guitars and basses. It is often instrumental, and frequently incorporates improvisation, funk rhythms, complex time signatures, and elongated track lengths. Famous jazz fusion artists and groups include Miles Davis, Weather Report, Return to Forever, Herbie Hancock and John McLaughlin.
