Two words : Frank, Zappa ....

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:

Some artists to suggest:
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/
