Should be called jazz-funk because the "rock" influences on fusion came from James Brown, Sly  Stone, and other Motown groups, not from the Rolling Stones and the Beatles Early examples include Miles Davis – Filles de Kilimanjaro Fusion Almost always straight 8th music Fusion uses more electronic instruments Electric bass guitar rather than acoustic bass Electric piano rather than acoustic piano. Many electronic effects alter the sound.  Distinguishing Jazz From  1) shorter phrase lengths 2) less frequent chord changes 4) less improvisation, especially in accompaniments 5) more repetition of melodic phrases
