Default Jazz-Funk and Jazz Fusion

I'm looking for recommendations of artists in the Jazz-Funk area (I've only listened to Head Hunters by Herbie Hancock but boy that was a great listen), and Jazz Fusion (Besides Miles Davis and John McLaughlin and Mahavishnu Orchestra, etc.) And possibly the old RnB too, somethin' similiar to Marvin Gaye (I've only listened to two of his albums).
But yeah, I did it here because the recommendation thread is dead.
Recommend albums to start with please.
