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.

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!

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.

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.
