Week Seven The Fusions: Latin Jazz, Third Stream, and Fusion

Can’t commit to a full course? Single classes are now available at Swing University for $35 each (fees may apply).

Since its origins, Jazz has fused with other styles and aesthetics. As it progressed, three specific “fusion” styles emerged and become highly influential. Latin Jazz sought to combine Jazz with a variety of Afro-Latin styles, Third Stream found a new language by combining Jazz and Classical music, while Fusion sought to fuse Jazz with Rock. Master artists like Mario Bauza, John Lewis, Joe Zawinul, Miles Davis, and many others helped to drive these developments along, and tonight we’ll look at how it all happened.
