I am looking for some instrumental fusion/jazz that is very complex and very interesting. Please recommend me some bands.

Jazz that has some rock influence in it. the song War dance by Colosseum II is a perfect example. Love fast jazz with groovey guitars.

check out the album Life Begins Again by Jimmy Chamberlin Complex. About half the songs are instrumental and they rip.

The Brecker Brothers are where it's at. Look them up... Too bad Michael just died...
...Do you realize that if we were in Germany Burgerville would be Burgerberg?

Miles always treats you well whichever phase he's in

John McLaughlin live was possibly the most intense show I have ever been to - I went home exhausted. The band took about ten minutes to reach a peak and then held it there. I can only wish I was around to see them in the 70s, when they were young.

While I hate Pat Metheny's tone and hairstyle, he's a brilliant player.

The albums I'd reccomend are:

Miles Davis:
In A Silent Way
Bitches Brew

Herbie Hancock:
Mwandishi
Crossings
Sextant

Mahavishnu Orchestra:
The Inner Mounting Flame
Birds of Fire

And any album from John McLaughlin or Pat Metheny.
