    Recommend some edgy and aggressive fusion

    Please recommend some edgy and aggressive fusion music.


    (This thread is inspired by a comment from Yanks2014 on the recent Weather Report thread.)

    Depends on what you call fusion
    Virgil Donati-In This Life; Simon Philips-Symbiosis; The Aristocrats-Culture Clash. Then there is Planet X; Derek Sherinian; Alex Argento; Felix Martin; Spaced Out; Antoine Fafard; T.R.A.M. That's just from top of my head.

    Hmmm....by "edgy and agressive" do you mean more experimental, free jazz-ish sort of thing...or do you mean something more aggro, as in "rawkin'"----wailin' hot guitar type of stuff???

    For the former, I'd recommend Ornette Coleman's Prime Time, Ronald Shannon Jackson's Decoding Society, James Blood Ulmer, Zorn's Electric Masada, Post 3rd/Pre Bundles Soft Machine, maybe some Steve Coleman, maybe Power Tools.

    For the latter, I'd recommend Ohm, Fire Merchants, The Aristocrats, Antoine Fafard, Spaced Out, Special Providence, and some Japanese bands like Fragile, Exhivision, FazJaz.

    Japanese can't pronounce L's but I'm pretty sure they can pronounce K's.

    Guitarcentric, but devoid of metal influences (like some of the above suggestions, not that there's anything wrong with that):

    Need more clarification Homburg ... do you just want shredding, or do you want spontaneous chops and avant garde, or do you want jamming, from a rock or a jazz standpoint, or something else.

    Anyway, here's a few suggestions:
    - anything with Gary Willis on it (he is a center point guest for a lot of fusion)
    - Liquid Tension Experiment
    - any McLaughlin
    - some Chic Corea
    - later Miles
    - Tribal Tech
    - Zawinul Syndicate, Weather Report

    Satoko Fujii Quartet
    Machine & The Synergetic Nuts
    Trio 96: Quartet 99

    All 3 are heavy on the jazz side of things though..

    I'd suggest Phlox from Estonia and One Shot. Amazing smoking fusion.
