Steve Vai Jazz Fusion?

Posted: Mon Apr 24, 2017 6:01 am
Hello I need help as in terms of understanding where Steve is in a jazz fusion type of style. I am currently working on a paper on a jazz class I accidentally entered. I must create a paper on someone in the current jazz scene or jazz fusion. Steve Vai is the closest that I have heard to that but he is not specified to that genre. I am allowed to just pick a specific song and my thoughts was Tender Surrender. I have researched online a ton but it is all considered as Hard Rock?? Do you consider that Hard Rock? Is there any evidence on him being jazz fusion at times or is there any artists that I may have heard into jazz? I don't want to do a paper on someone I don't like. Thank you for any help on this topic.
