Working with a very wide definition of Jazz-Rock that encompasses James Brown, Jack Bruce, Carlos Santana, The Grateful Dead, Sly and the Family Stone, and Jimi Hendrix, as well as more obvious choices such as Miles Davis, Weather Report, Chick Corea, and Jack DeJohnette, the author explores the history of the marriage of Jazz and Rock that burst into being with the 1969 release of Davis' Bitches Brew . He examines how FM radio popularized and then sanitized the music throughout the 1970s, eventually causing it to sink into relative obscurity, and how elements of it live on in the works of such "avant-garde" artists as Bill Frisell and John Zorn.
