By the late 1970s 'jazz-rock' had largely been replaced by the term 'fusion,' which was also used to describe the blending of jazz with any other type of music ... However ... fusion is still most often thought of as a highly amplified mixture of jazz with rock and funk, and the terms ... may be used interchangeably. From the late 1980s the term 'electric jazz' was also often used")
