I'd suggest music from the Rippingtons when Marienthal was in that group. Such as:

Anyone got any smooth jazz that's exciting or interesting?

You'll have to define "exciting" or "interesting" in terms of what's already been posted. And why it's not "exciting" or "interesting".

Or you could point me to something that you think qualifies. Most of the smooth jazz I've listened to is very dull and lifeless, I'd rather not have to go through all the songs in the thread to explain what I mean by that.

I've posted this before. This is a clip from their 25th anniversary tour. I don't think this is lifeless. The song is "Cruise Control" from the album "Butterfly". Special EFX is one of my favorites (along with others). It gives you a taste.

Before it was called "Smooth Jazz" we used to call it "Fuzak".

Never heard the term but urban dictionary says:

""Fuzak" is a portmanteau of "fusion", short for "jazz-rock fusion", used as synecdoche for "smooth jazz", a style of music known for its blandness, and "muzak", a genericized trademark referring to "elevator music"."

Smooth jazz doesn't have to be fusion-based though.
Although of course at that level of blandness everything sounds kinda the same.
