Will Punk Jazz Replace The Sounds Of Funk?
Don Snowden, Los Angeles Times, 15 November 1981
PUNK JAZZ? It's hard to imagine a more unlikely musical combination. Punk rock favors short, fast songs and disparages musical technique in favor of "anyone-can-do-it" rawness. Jazz emphasizes instrumental virtuosity and leans toward long, improvisatory compositions. Yet punk-jazz is the label being attached to a new jazz-rock-funk hybrid that some predict will be the successor to the influential jazz-rock and jazz-funk fusion schools.
