Jazz-funk.


A 20th-century pop music style. It fuses jazz and jazz-influenced melody and improvisation with the more simple, driving rhythms and bass lines of funk as characterized by James Brown and Parliament. Early jazz-funk albums included Miles Davis’s Bitches Brew (1969), which also incorporated many rock elements. In the 1970s many American jazz artists such as Donald Byrd, Herbie Hancock and Lonnie Liston Smith added funk elements to their sound; in the late 70s and early 80s, British groups began to explore jazz-funk, with bands such as Light of the World and Hi Tension softening the hard-edged rhythms of funk and incorporating more jazz elements. By the late 1980s and 90s the definition had narrowed: jazz-funk lost many of the jazz inflections that had characterized its beginnings. It became a more spartan, simpler music, more heavily reliant on a standard 4/4 rhythm track, repetitive bass guitar groove and, frequently, a rhythm guitar line more heavily influenced by disco than in the 1970s. Protagonists of this development included the Brand New Heavies, Jamiroquai and the Hammond organ-based James Taylor Quartet. Additionally, from jazz funk came Acid Jazz, at first a record label but soon an umbrella term used to describe the more adventurous jazz-funk artists, such as Galliano.
