Top 10 Hybrid Music Genres

These genres are mostly underrated and shouldn't be passed up by anyone who has a good ear for music.

The Top Ten

1 Fusion Jazz

I am a huge fan of this genre, as I grew up listening to artists like Stanley Clarke, Al Di Meola, Chick Corea, and Lenny White (basically all 4 members of the compilation group Return To Forever). I also listen to Larry Coryell (the Godfather of Fusion) and Jean-Luc Ponty. Fusion Jazz is a hybrid between jazz and rock music. - Mcgillacuddy
