When you think of Jimi Hendrix, you may think about his primary field of rock, but he touched a plethorea of musical genres. Our focus on this show will be jazz rock/ fusion. Many rightly consider Miles Davis as the Father of Fusion. He should be considered as such, because he took the first leap and showed everyone that fusion is a not only popular with fans, but can also make lots of money.
People credit Miles' young wife Betty as hipping him to people like Sly Stone and Jimi Hendrix, but Jimi and Miles hit it off on thier own as well. If Miles was hip to Jimi, than he should have heard the auditory blueprint of Jimi's music going back to his first album, Are You Experienced?
Jimy Bleu from 89.1 WFDU will be on hand to talk about Jimi's connection to fusion. Jimy can be heard every Tuesday from 1:00 - 3:45 pm on WFDU (89.1) in the tri-state area (NY, NJ, Conn.) or worldwide at: http://www.wfdu.fm

Equally at home in blues, R & B, rock, funk, and jazz venues/stages. The music is 99% instrumental, very high energy (not high volume) band. There is a difference!
You could describe Hot Shock music this way:
Jazz Fusion infused with Latin, Carribeo, Funk, Blues, R & B and Rock
You could almost say it is World Jazz Fusion

Scott Yanow (Bio):
.....Jazz Journalist and historian. Since then, I have been involved in many projects.

In addition to having written ten books so far (most recently The Jazz Singers) and writing for the Jazz Heritage Club, I have written several episodes for the popular jazz radio series Jim Cullum's Riverwalk - Live At The Landing.
I have written over 750 liner notes, hundreds of press biographies and press releases, and it has been said that I have reviewed more jazz recordings than anyone in history. I have contributed to virtually all of the major jazz magazines including Downbeat, Jazz Times, Jazziz, Cadence, Coda, The Mississippi Rag, Jazz Forum, Jazz News, The Jazz Report, Planet Jazz, Jazz Now and Jazz
