Weather Report is a good place to start. And any of the side or solo
projects by these guys works too.

Wish you all lived in Atlanta so you could here Duane Trucks's jazz trio, Genetic Drift. Awesome!

Weather Report is excellent. Mahavishnu albums The Inner Mounting Flame, The Lost Tapes or Live are great. Also check out the band Brand X.

Right you are...Even though Zawinbul's keyboards mimic it at times...But, regardless, Jaco makes up for any stringed shortage. That guy was unbelievable!

"Teen Town"....Masterpiece. That song has always reminded me of a passing, brilliant lightning storm. JP wrote that song, and played drums and bass on that track. His snare sounds like rockets going off...his bass line coming from some bluezy, jazzy outer space zone. .

You're right..That's about as pretty as a song can get. Wayne Shorter can bring tears to your eyes. He does on that one.

There was a time in the 60's that jazz people called Wayne Shorter the greatest writer of that decade...

Now I bought a Santana CD "Welcome" today. I had it in vinyl and it is a great album if you like your jazz fusion with a lot of guitar....

I agree to all the recommendations here, especially Weather Report & Return To Forever are superb!

Also I'd like to recommend following old stuff. I think only a few folks here know these albums but I really love them.

Billy Cobham: Alive mutherforya

L.A.Express: Shadow Play
http://www.amazon.com/Shadow-Play-L-Express/dp/B0012CJM8G/



Arista All Stars: Blue Montreux (I & II)
http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Montreux/dp/B000008BSV/



Steps (Steps Ahead): Smokin' In The Pit
http://www.amazon.com/Smokin-Pit-Steps-Ahead/dp/B00000JY6J/



They all are great live performances!!

Back when radio was radio you could expect to hear something from any one of the LPs that Masahiko has listed.
Radio stations just don't get it anymore.

I used to listen to a lot of fusion back in the 70's/early 80's but found myself getting really turned off by the musical excesses of the genre. A lot of it began to sound like technique for technique's sake. I also got turned off by all the synthesizers and over production. A lot of the Creed Taylor (or CTI) stuff especially seems to have had most of the soul washed out of it with too many strings & synthesizers. I'm not saying the music is bad, but in comparison to the jazz of the 40's, 50's & early 60's, great blues of any era, and the classic rock & roll (however you define it), it leaves me feeling a little empty. Now, I appreciate fusion in small, selective doses. Much of what is mentioned in this thread is really good. Some of it doesn't hold up over time IMO.

But, just as the british blues invasion turned a lot of people on to Muddy, Wolf, Robert Johnson, Willie Dixon, etc. Working backwards from fusion will take you to the great music of Miles, Coltrane, Monk, Cannonball, Sonny Rollins, etc, etc.

While I don't think of these as fusion, you might really like these also:

John McLaughlin "After The Rain" trio session dedicated to Coltrane w/ Joey D. & Elvin Jones. Really powerful!

Wayne Shorter "Ju Ju", "Night Dreamer", "Adams Apple", "Soothsayer", or any other Shorter cd from the early 60's. Some of the best jazz of that era.

Larry Young "Unity"

Joe Henderson "So Near, So Far" tribute to Miles w/ Scofield, Holland, Foster.
