From roots to fusion — Episode 12

Like a firebomb, free jazz exploded, only to slowly fade into obscurity. "Jazz is dead," the critics declared. But was he? We have reached the end of this journey, with the inauguration of a new chapter not only in the history of the genre, but of universal music: fusion. That was, musically, culturally and socially, the only way to move forward.

With this episode ends our podcast From Roots to Fusion, an essay by John Harden in the voice of Omar Pérez. If you want to know the origin of this program read Harden's text The blues and the search for an African-American identity.
