    Gary Burton with Keith Jarrett, when Jarrett played electric keyboards and soprano sax in the first Seventies.
    A special mention for Sam Brown, incredible guitarist, who stands out in the entire album:

    Possibly a late reply to the thread, but some of my favorite Jazz fusion and Smooth jazz is (albums):

    Bob James - Touchdown
    Chuck Mangione - Greatest Hits (1987)
    Dave Grusin - Migration
    George Benson - Breezin'
    George Benson - Weekend in L.A.
    Herb Alpert - Fandango
    Herb Alpert - Rise
    Lee Ritenour - Earth Run
    Lee Ritenour - Portrait
    Lee Ritenour - Festival
    Lee Ritenour - Color Rit
    Pat Metheny Group - Letter from Home
    The Rippingtons - Tourist in Paradise
    Yellowjackets - Four Corners

    Some artists to suggest:
    Gary Burton
    Keith Jarrett

    If I find anything else I'll let you know. A good radio station to listen to is CD101.9. It was the best smooth jazz/jazz fusion radio station alive in the 90s. It sadly died a few years later. But it is still alive on the internet! You can listen to it here http://hestia2.cdnstream.com/1277_192 or on Tune-In radio app here https://tunein.com/radio/Smooth-Jazz-CD1019-New-York-s254882/
