You should listen to the live version on Jaco Pastorius - Live in Italy. It makes me cream my pants.

For fusion, I like Mahavishnu (of course), Brand X, Yellowjackets, and Medeski, Martin & Wood. I would recommend Brand X - Unorthodox Behaviour as a good fusion album. It even features Phil Collins who, believe it or not, is an insane drummer.

"Kind of Blue" by Miles Davis is the most famous jazz album, and is pretty easy to listen to if you're into swingin jazz. Also check out the album "Headhunters" by Herbie Han****, which is a funky/electric/groovy album, and was also the fastest selling jazz album in history, if i'm not mistaken. I WOULD NOT start with John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme," because it's pretty 'out there,' and might sound disorganized to the untrained ear.

Pocket ace's advice is pretty good. John Zorn is pretty out there (I love Him) not a good place to start.

Is Jazz Fusion good to start with for experimental/prog/indie fans? I'm looking for a place to start but this is really uncharted territory for me.

Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Jordan are of course not to be forgotten!
