Try "The Modern Jazz Quartet". They might be what youre looking for. Real smooth.

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.

Relaxing? The Rite Of Strings by Stanley Clarke, Al Di Meola and Jean-Luc Ponty.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

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
