Fusion, the term coined sometime around the late 60s to describe a fusing of post hard-bop jazz and R&B with progressive rock has been applied to many styles of improvised music. The Fusion 6 was created when old friends and collaborators in bands varying from soul/disco to funk and jazz decided to crete an outlet to satisfy their need to feel the groove and so naturally they gravitated towards the addictive rhythms of the 90’s Acid Jazz label artists from JTQ to Corduroy, their forerunners such as Hammond giants, Jimmys Smith and McGriff, to contemporary extrapolations of the style - Down to the Bone, The Boston Horns and The New Mastersounds. The 6 piece outfit consists of Mr Cool himself, percussionist Fern Rose with Tony Imbierski - Hammond Organ, Steve Brooks - guitar, Paul Wallace – bass, Tony McKenna - drums and Andy Kennedy - saxophones and EWI, feeling the groove all the way.
