Lazy Sunday: Fusion Music
Posted April 28, 2013on:
We’ve made it through another week of cr*p, Widdershins.
It’s time to treat ourselves and get lost in some tunes. Today I have selected fusion music for your consideration – the blending of at least two genre to elicit a totally different sound. For example, rock and roll came to us as a fusion of country, gospel, and blues, and is now a genre of its own. The jazz musicians have been front and center in adapting to fusion, but there are at least twenty or thirty different kinds. Other forms of fusion music includes the blending of traditional world music with another type, such as Dropkick Murphys, which is a Celtic punk rock band. There are other forms of roots rock such as Southern Rock. At any rate, there is a boatload of it, so there should be absoluely no shortage of tunes today.
Here are my five, in no particular order. Otherwise, this is an open thread.
(1) The Approaching Storm – Chicago, 1971
(2 Sympathy for the Devil – The Rolling Stones, 1068
(3) I’m Shipping Up to Boston – Dropkick Murphys, 2005
(4) Sweet Home Alabama – Lynard Skynard, 1974
(5) Mumbai Funk – various, date unknown
(6) Ode to Joy – from “Sister Act 2”, 1993
Have a great Sunday, Widdershins.
