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.

Most of the stuff suggested is cool jazz. Smooth jazz is more like Kenny G, Grover Washington, etc
But thats ok, because Cool jazz>>smooth jazz
