Album Notes
Pop Fuze is a collection of radio friendly modern electric jazz-rock instrumentals from the Detroit based band Fuze. The band is known for their improvisational jams and unique jazz-rock sound and this CD shows them restraining themselves into more of a pop format to make some songs approachable to many more people.

The CD opens with a salvo of catchy pop-jazz instrumentals with the highlight being Funk to Jazz. The CD gets more experimental and moody with Waiting for Goodbye, the most improvisational song on the CD also featuring the bass stylings of Craig Wisper. The CD continues with the ballad Resolve and another quick hitter Joyride before heading into the most adventurous Covert Ops. The CD ends with a soft landing with Coming Home, a piano and acoustic guitar piece that wraps things up in a calming manner.

All songs were written by Joe Purrenhage except Waiting for Goodbye which was written by Dave Kneeves. Joe Purrenhage plays keyboards and guitar as well as bass on all songs except Joyride and Waiting for Goodbye which has Craig Wisper playing bass. Dave Kneeves performs lead guitar throughout and Marcus Roland plays drums and percussion.

The CD was recorded by the band at the Online Bands Studio from the fall of 2005 through the end of 2006. Most of the mixing was done throughout the same period as songs were created. In December 2007, the mixes were sent off to Bob Katz at Digital Domain for mastering.

Fuze is best known for their weekly live jam session called the Saturday Night Jam which is now available as a podcast. This show features the band creating improvised jams each week for a huge collection of these spontaneous songs from over the last decade. Many of the songs on this disc are the result of these creative writing sessions.

The first line in the album notes caught my immediate attention: "radio friendly".
I host a radio program in Santa Cruz, California called "THE FUZE". I came up with the name without knowledge of the group FUZE. I was looking for a name for the program that reflected my intention, at the time, of developing a show that featured Jazz Fusion music. Since then (2009) my playlist has become Eclectic and I jokingly tell my audience that The Fuze has gone from Jazz Fusion to CON-fusion. I love the group and their music and glad i've caught up with them.
