I dislike most smooth jazz so I suggest you look for relaxing music in a different direction

^Bill Evans and Jim Hall

And check out Kind of Blue era Miles Davis.

Personally I find Coltrane's A Love Supreme to be incredible balm for the soul after a long day but you'll have to make your own conclusions about the album; it's not for everyone. Relaxed it is not but certainly relaxing. YMMV.

check out Norman Brown. his album "After the Storm" is really good. Craig Chaquico's album "Acoustic Planet" is a great mix of new age and smooth jazz.
