Jazz funk is known for its hard, plucking electric bass, relentless propulsive rhythm, and the occasional tightly orchestrated horn section. A grand blend of rhythm and blues with rock and roll, jazz funk is characterized by a prevalent groove, and an early inclusion of electronic instruments. Notable musicians who performed in this style include Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Donald Byrd, Herbie Hancock, and Jaco Pastorius.
