The genre fusion, as the name implies, is a blend of many styles and influences. This book and CD utilize four tunes as a basis to show how this fusion-blending process can occur and expose you to major trends that exist. You aregiven unique step-by-step approaches to developing fused feels that are not just superficial pasting-together of styles, but truly new grooves of your making.

In addition, there are many agility exercises to help youreach a high level of musicianship. Each of the style-evolutions and exercises is fully notated in the book and performed on the CD. These lessons culminate in a tune that incorporates what you have learned. The CD contains ademonstration performance of the tune, followed by a version of the tune without the drums for you to play-along. The book provides a drum chart and lead sheet.
