After having read all posts here I have to reluctantly agree with the majority - Mahavishnu Orchestra undoubtfully no.1 in fusion/jazz-rock for me too.

Don't forget the Italian band "Arti & Mestieri" with their release "Tilt."  The drumming on this album is incredible and the band comes up with some melodious, high energy, jazz/rock fusion.

The Norwegian WIGWAM is a shame for our country!!!  

 

However, my fave Jazz-Rock bands:

  • Brand X
  • Passport
  • Soft Machine
  • Gong (75-77)
  • Mezzoforte

I'll check out Return To Forever and Mahavishnu Orchestra soon!

Miles Davis' bands and the first incarnations of Mahavishnu and Return to Forever blew everybody else out of the water, IMO.  Brand X is a neat band but none of those guys were real jazz musicians.

1. Mahavishnu Orchestra

2. Mothers of Invention (for the sake of Hot Rats)

3. Embryo (more of Krautrock, but listed in Fusion in progarchives anyway)

4. Gong (Pierre Moerlen era and PM's Gong- for the sake of Downwind)

5. Chigago (yes, it is Jazz Rock!)

6. Miles Davis Band (Bitches Brew thing)

7. Herbie Hancock (Headhunters era)

8. Return to Forever

9. Weather Report

sorry for Brand X

Listen to Turkish psych/prog; you won't regret:
Baris Manco,Erkin Koray,Cem Karaca,Mogollar,3 Hürel,Selda,Edip Akbayram,Fikret Kizilok,Ersen (and Dadaslar) (but stick with the '70's, and 'early 80's!)

Colosseum, especially when fronted by Chris Farlowe, what a voice.
