Birds of Fire: Talking Fusion with Kevin Fellezs. Karl Hagstrom Miller interviews the author of a new book on jazz/rock fusion.
[Fusion] was music that I found both virtuosic and visceral — a marriage of technique and expression that I found compelling and exhilarating. And I couldn’t believe that no one else seemed to feel this way. Fusion wasn’t even being talked about in jazz circles and Stuart Nicholson’s Jazz-Rock book was more than a decade away. When I first started this project, it really felt like a personal crusade.
