I am definitely posting some French delights in here, when I get home to my computer. To think it sits there all day without a spasy danish dude tapping it's keys... poor thing.

Holy crap, that was awesome. American Bandstand! Alex Ligertwood was great in Santana. I saw Alex's band in '00 up close at a benefit (stage was same level as the audience). In the band was Chicago's Jason Scheff, future Tom Petty drummer Steve Ferrone, and keyboardist extraordinaire Vince DiCola. They did some smooth rock tunes and then the band would light things up with some incendiary instrumental workouts.

Well, it did have a good beat and you can dance to it.

As promised, here's some Syrinx:



What about some One Shot?

Return To Forever can really get going also as well as Mahavishnu as the earlier poster mentioned.
here's the PA page on fusion
Three excellent recommendations...

@guldbamsen: thank you for introducing me to Syrinx! That is wonderful stuff.  It doesn't really sound like any other band, and best of all: no singing! 
@gerinski: That Iceberg song "NOVA" is pretty great too, I'll try to get that album.  I went through a Spanish Prog phase last year but somehow missed them.  Not surprising.

You're welcome, if you are interested I have reviewed all their albums. Sentiments and Coses Nostres are their best IMO. In Spain in the 70's they were informally referred to as 'the Spanish Mahavishnu' Tongue

I think The Viola Crayola are decently show-offy:

Another great jazz rock / fusion band from Tito's Yugoslavia (Slovenia).

They are no longer. I saw them play in 2002. Really good fusion in a guitar-woodwinds-bass-drums format...no keyboards.

And how could I forget Panzerballett. Well known for their jazzy, metally deconstructionist mashup cover tunes.

In-your-face fusion with blindingly fast runs, and horn shredding? Chase!
They even have an entry on Prog Archives: http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=3059
