If you are interested in 70's Jazz/Fusion, I'll give you some recommendations for albums..:
- by Mahavishnu Orchestra: The Inner Mounting Flame, Birds of Fire
- by Return to Forever: Where Have I Known You Before, Romantic Warrior
- by Weather Report: Black Market, I Sing The Body Electric
 
Also, be sure to have a listen to Soft Machine, their third album is maybe a classic in that realm of prog.

Jean-Luc Ponty is really good Jazz Fusion. Enigmatic Ocean is a great album of his to start with. Mahavishnu Orchestra is awesome as well.

For French Canadian prog from the 70's, you have
 - Morse Code (available thru  ProgQuebec :  www.progquebec.com )
 - Maneige (also available thru ProgQuebec)
 - Octobre (available from Amazon.ca)
 - Harmonium (more like Folk-prog, available from Amazon.ca)
 
Good luck !   :-)

Jazz prog? Get Frank Zappa's Hot Rats... maybe more jazz than rock at times and God knows that else Frank threw in there, but it's still a pretty cool album.
Rejecting heaven, spurning the high ground, they stood in the way of demons and damnation... defending themselves alone.

Specific recommendation:
As far as French Canadian progressive rock goes, you can't beat the excellent Maneige's album Les Porches. Lots of jazz and classical stylings.

The 'obvious' progressive rock starter-set is, in my opinion, something like
Fragile or Close To The Edge - Yes
Nursery Cryme - Genesis (SEBTP is better, but it took me much longer to appreciate)
Thick As A Brick - Jethro Tull
In The Court Of The Crimson King - King Crimson
Emerson, Lake & Palmer - ELP
and Free Hand - Gentle Giant

If you like darker stuff, Van Der Graaf Generator's Godbluff is also vital.

'jazz prog'- new corruption of the genre or are we not talking 'jazz rock fusion' - otherwise I would recommend the obvious, check out the top 20 album listed in the Archives.
