    The more thorough list is here but I believe it hasn’t been updated in years:

    My favourite jazz suite is Keith Jarrett's The Survivors Suite on ECM recorded in 1976. Just divided into Beginning and Conclusion across the two sides of the record, it's an amazing piece of writing - although, as to be expected with Jarrett, it's 100% acoustic and so doesn't have any of the fusion feel of the era. A little less structured is the live album Eyes of the Heart by the same quartet which sort of begins as a version of the Survivors Suite and then drifts off.

    GREAT recommendation. I'm digging this immensely!
    • Bennie Maupin - reeds, glockenspiel
    • Herbie Hancock - piano, electric piano
    • Buster Williams - bass
    • Frederick Waits - drums, marimba
    • Billy Hart - drums
    • Bill Summers - percussion
    • Charles Sullivan - trumpet
    It has that gentle pastoral feel that I like so much. Some of the other pieces recommended (and on the Kozmigroov list) are just blowfest freakouts.

    Not sure if it fits, but some of Mal Waldron's music, especially his 80s-90s output, might. I'm thinking the live album Crowd Scene which features two 25 minute plus pieces that start somewhere and go somewhere. The title track is probably my favorite of Waldron's longform songs.

    You might like Wayne Shorter's Moto Grosso Feio from '74. Chick Corea on marimba, Dave Holland on guitar, Ron Carter on bass and cello. John McLaughlin on 12-string, Michelin Prell on drums.

    Another excellent example I just ran across -- and it's not on the Kozmigroove list -- is this (volumes I & II):

    Reminds me a bit of the Pharoah Sanders and Alice Coltrane albums from the same period — more good examples.

    The new album from Maisha, especially the title track, is clearly influenced by the spiritual groove of Alice & Pharaoh - & John Coltrane's Africa (which they cover on their debut album).

    ECM are finally giving this a CD reissue, coming out mid-May. Not before time!

    There's a 2-fer CD with Realization/Inside Out that's out of print now, but I'm sure you can find it at discogs. Or just listen to them on YT.

    It did come out on CD around 10 years ago, but in a really ugly cover. Hope they go back to the original this time.

    Yeah, it looks like they are going back to the classic art this time with Bennie in the middle of the lotus petals.

    Ya know, a couple months ago I ran across this. Combines the modal jazz of Miles Davis with the modal music of South India. The result, I thought, was surprisingly successful!

    Yes, very nice indeed. Inispired by ehe Complete On the Corner Sessions which featured (electric) sitar and tabla. I'm a fan of "India-fusion" stuff.

    A favourite with me too. It also has the great, but reclusive, Pete Cosey playing on five tracks.

    Big fan of that one.

    I bought it from Laser's Edge on CD a few years back, and ended up getting the triple vinyl box a month or so later because it was so good. Still return to it.

    Yup, those amazon prices are amazingly stupendous.

    Mmmhhh!!!... woudn't call the alternate cover ugly... The original wasn't much in line with the usual ECM artworks of those times... or ever since.

    Nat Birchall is somewhat in this vein but I tend to hear his work as more along the lines of a Coltrane pastiche.
