Well its not a genre carved in stone so something like this:

Miles Davis (68-75)
Mwadishi Sextet (Herbie Hancock)... just everything Mawadishi-related although that's cheating
Terje Rypdal (70-75)
Soft Machine
Jeremy Steig
Embryo
Placebo
Dave Pike Set
Michael Naura
Bj÷rn J:son Lindh

+Nucleus... there's so many I love for a short period of time... like Weather Report and Return to Forever's two first & tons of one "one or two jazz fusion album-wonders"

and I really like Perigeo as well - almost everything they ever recorded. They're never mentioned but deserve to be.

I have the Michael Naura Quartet's album Call, which is pretty cool, but that's all I know. What else should I be checking out?

I think their first four are all top drawer. But have not explored the later stuff.

I guess I forgot that there was more studio albums than their first four (+ those later archival live albums... which are great)

I will explain why I consider the United Jazz and Rock Ensemble to be the best ever: the top line-up. Jon Hiseman, Eberhard Weber (later replaced by Dave King), Wolfgang Dauner, Volker Kriegel, Barbara Thompson, Charlie Mariano, Ian Carr, Kenny Wheeler, Ack van Rooyen and Albert Mangelsdorff. here a few examples of them:










they are unfortunately little known because their albums are very rare. they were only distributed by the German shop chain Zweitausendeins, with shops originally in 3 cities of Germany only and 14 cities during their heyday.

I especially like the big horn section of the UJRE that gives them quite a big band sound

Many thanks for the suggestion Thumbs Up
