Jazz-Funk Music

Jazz-Funk often treads the line between experimental Fusion and poppy Disco, though it generally maintains a tight, electrified sound resting on a base of repetitive rhythms. Jazz artists began combining crisp backbeats and jazzy arrangements in the 1950s and '60s, leading to a style that arguably reached its peak in the '70s.
