    Frank Gambale is absolutely wonderful guitar player, who mixes rock guitar playing/tone with jazz influences :)

    I just recently started listening to jazz fusion stuff, but i'm not into all the free form noodling where each instrument is doing it's own thing. I like stuff with more song structures.

    Any recommendations ? :)

    Birds Of Fire - Mahivshnu Orchestra
    Crossings - Herbie Hancock
    Caravanserai - Santana
    Romantic Warrior - Return To Forever
    Hot Rats - Frank Zappa
    Unorthodox Behaviour - Brand X
    What If - Dixie Dregs
    Black Market - Weather Report
    Cross-Collateral - Passport
    Out Of The Woods - Oregon
    The Way Up - Pat Metheny
    The Rite Of Strings - Stanley Clarke, Al Di Meola & Jean-Luc Ponty
    Elegant Gypsy - Al Di Meola
    Mystical Adventures - Jean-Luc Ponty
    Spectrum - Billy Cobham

    Jazz-fusion can encompass so many different styles and structures, even metal. I think (hope) these suggestions are what you are looking for as IMO these aren't "noodling" as in the form of avant-garde, free-form, improvisitional and experimental.

    ^^^^

    Thanks! :) I'll check it all out. Of the ones mentioned I enjoy Brand X the most, and some Weather Report. I haven't heard of Passport, Oregon or Billy Cobham.

    Well there has been some great bands mentioned here, many of which I have purchased, I do like the Canterbury sound in particular, I love Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock, picked a load of great stuff up for £3 a piece which is pretty good going:)
