Red face Re: So I want to play Fusion......

the act or process of fusing; the state of being fused

Regarding your particular usage of the word though...
popular music that is a blend of two styles, esp. a combining of jazz with either rock, funk, classical music, or such ethnic elements as Brazilian or Japanese music.

Fusion and/or progressive music can sometimes be one and the same IMHO

Something like Trans Siberian Orchestra is, I feel, both progressive and fusion. Though fusion most often applies to jazz with rock leanings or rock with jazz leanings... For example, some of my faves

Chick Corea and Return To Forever
