If you're looking more towards Acid, I'd recommend:

1) Stuff by the group Incognito. Lots of brass and great vocals (Maysa Lea), IMHO.

2) This is hard to find but fantastic:
Home Cookin'

3) Greyboy Allstars

4) Nuyorican Soul

5) Giant Steps Vol 1

Amazon has most of these so you can get a listen.

I'd reccomend looking for albums with musicians such as:

Victor Wooten
Alain Caron
Adam Nitti
Marcus Miller
Tom Kennedy
Dave Weckl
Omar Hakim
David Sanbourn
some of George Howard's stuff

Thanks for the advice guys!
Bruce I searched those names and checked out their samples on their web sites. Thanks alot you just introduced a whole new genre of music for me to enjoy. Some really incredible stuff there. It'll take a few weeks to decide but I will definitly be making some purchases.

Searching Omar Hakim brought me to a very interesting site;
www.guitar9.com
found a gem here deric rush "wood and steel"

I'll be checking this site for awhile. Also I was very impressed with Dave Weckl, and Marcus Miller

You're absolutely welcome. These guys are real inspirations to me. Wish I could play bass like those guys but, alas, I can only spend a very limited time on my hobby.

I forgot to mention checking out Chick Corea's electric band (plays with Dave Weckl, John Patitucci, Eric Marienthal depending on the album - all amazing musicians)

I have a Chick Corea CD in my car's changer and can't seem to get myself to ever pull it out to listen to much else .

Another band I was impressed with was Bob Mintzer's Band (post Yellowjackets I believe), though the tune I litened to had him playing a (I think) Yamaha WX-7 synth sax. Don't know who the bass player was but very hot playing.

Wow, sounds to me a lot like Joe Satriani.

I used to be into Billy Cobham quite a bit. Excellent drummer surrounded by funky sidemen!

Hmmm...how about the band, Galactic? I'd consider them a good jazz/funk band. Medeski Martin & Wood as well, but no guitars.

I was about to suggest Billy Cobham after seeing the turn they were taking.

Some of his older albums, especially the "Return to Forever" lineup with Stanley Clark and Al DiMeola, are extremely busy and extremely good.

Not exactly my specialty, but when you speak of "epileptic fit" Ornette Coleman comes to mind. His classic albums are "Change of the Century" and "The Shape of Jazz to Come" but these are mostly sax albums with other instruments in the background. Jaco Pastorius lays down some wild and fast bass on his solo albums and with the band Weather Report. Someone already mentioned great albums by Herbie Hancock. Miles Davis has "Bitches Brew" and "Tribute to Jack Johnson" among others but I think you're looking for spicier salsa. There's also a guy by the name of John Coltrane - I hear he's pretty good.
