Top Definition
A style of progressive rock music that has a distinct African or African American flavor. Unlike radio friendly rhythm and blues or motown pop, this music involves long compositions with extended solos. Sometimes psychedelic, sometimes symphonic, sometimes jazzy, but always rock based.
