There is so much improv being woven between musics not having much to do with the narrow term ‘jazz’ that I’ve come to understand jazz proper has recently entered its next developmental phase. The gist of it is young and youngish improvisors from every continent are no longer beholden to the conventions of classicism or the avant-garde.
So it is the term ‘fusion’ has become vital again as a marker of unfussy experiments and shaking up of genre conventions.
