On the jazz fusion side I would recommend the following albums;
Stanley Clarke - Self Titled, School Days, Journey to Love.
Return to Forever - Light as a Feather, Hymn of the Seventh Galaxy, Where Have I Known You Before, No Mystery, Romantic Warrior.
Al Di Meola - Land of the Midnight Sun, Elegant Gypsy, Casino, Splendido Hotel, Electric Rendezvous.
Jean-Luc Ponty - Upon the Wings of Music, Aurora, Imaginary Voyage, Enigmatic Ocean, Cosmic Messenger.
Dixie Dregs - Free Fall, What If.
Eumir Deodato - Percepcao, Prelude, Deodato 2, Deodato in concert (at the Felt Forum, NY), First Cuckoo.
Billy Cobham - Spectrum, Crosswinds.
Colosseum II - Strange New Flesh, Electric Savage, Wardance.
Mahavishnu Orchestra (John McLaughlin) - The Inner Mounting Flame, Birds of Fire, Between Nothingness and Eternity, Visions of the Emerald Beyond.
Herbie Hancock - Sextant, Head Hunters, Flood.
Passport - Second Passport, Passport - Doldinger, Hand Made, Cross-Collateral.
Brand X - Unorthodox Behavior, Morrocan Roll, Livestock, Masques.
Bill Bruford - Feels Good to Me, One of a Kind.
Alphonse Mouzon - Mind Transplant
Nova (British) - Vimana, Wings of Love.
Weather Report - Sweetnighter, Mysterious Traveller, Tale Spinnin', Black Market.
Allan Holdsworth - Velvet Darkness, IOU, Road Games, Metal Fatigue.
Electromagnets (with Eric Johnson 1975) - Electromagnets.
Edit - Teaim - No offense, but the only thing I've posted here that would border on funk/fusion would be Herbie Hancock. The rest are jazz/rock fusion.
Darth, Teaims recommendation of Hot Rats is a good one, though Frank has far better jazz fusion related material. Hot Rats was known for containing the 9 minute+ song 'Willie the Pimp' which is a hard rock number featuring Captain Beefheart on vocals. That was the standout track. Knowing your tastes, I'm pretty sure you'd find the rest of the album as boring filler.
Frank does a much better job attempting fusion on albums like; Waka/Jawaka, The Grand Wazoo, and Sleep Dirt. Even Over-nite Sensation has it's fusion moments with guest Jean Luc Ponty on electric violin. Those are highly recommended.
Most collectors know that allmusic.com is a joke, and very inaccurate. Their reviews are done by a bunch of kids that haven't even heard half of what they review, and base much of the more obscure bands reviews soley on other sites, blogs etc. Either that, or the bands don't exist within the site.
For accurate reviews go here. I've been a member, and have contributed many reviews over the last couple of years:
I highly recommend joining. Their data base makes allmusic's look like a 2 page flyer! All reviews are done by members themselves, with whom you can communicate if you need feel the need. Anyone who truly appreciates music needs to join!
