Maybe closer to fusion than smooth jazz?

No, not really 'cause it wasn't based on slick technique or the melding of styles -
just a more smooth sound using strings and massed background voices and
often the skippy piano sound of Floyd Cramer, for instance.

Again, more to follow if there's any interest at all. I can talk at length on this subject, but will do so only others want to as well.
Narrowing it down to 48 to 56 seems like having a war on two fronts cause there is a lot of good music before and after that time frame to compete with. I don't know if you are going to get technical with Country music versus Western Swing, but the Tiffany Transcriptions were records before '48. And '57 had hits by Elvis, the Everly Brothers, Johnny Cash, and "The Killer" - Jerry Lee Lewis. Even Marty Robins had a hit in 57 with "A White Sports Coat (and a Pink Carnation)" and if that single wasn't awesome enough he releases "Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs" in '59. Sorry for the bad news, but that album shot your little theory right between the eyes.

But that stuff is good. Is there good smooth jazz I don't know about?

In Seven Killings it's portrayed like that album was absolutely huge in Jamaica. Does anybody know anything about that?

Yes, it was - especially in the late 60s/early 70s. Lots of guys continued the trend of doing songs inspired by spaghetti westerns - especially after the big hit movie "The Harder They Come." Jimmy Cliff's character is in a movie theater and is watching "Jango" and it inspires him to become an outlaw. There are even flashbacks to the film during the final gun battle. Lots of good stuff - dub too! - that you can explore out there.

I have the soundtrack and I've listened to it tons of times. Johnny too Bad (love that song) came to mind as I was typing. But I've never actually seen the movie.
