RKR Fusion is an eclectic combination of musical styles which has produced deep, tasteful grooves that captivate the listener. A large part of the uniqueness of their sound is they are a rhythm section that plays all the melodies and harmonies too. In this respect you can hear one of their major infuences, Medeski, Martin & Wood, but there are many others. For instance, The Meters, Galactic and Stanton Moore have provided the New Orleans funk flavor; Fela Kuti and Hugh Masekela the polyrhythms of Afrobeat; Chopin and Greig for compsition and chordal structure. Add all these ingredients into a hot broth of solid musicianship and you come up with a big ole pot full of groove known as RKR Fusion.
