All good reviews, George, and I have nothing to add. However would you consider a section called "Jazzrock" or "Fusion"? One that would include only the hard stuff. You reviewed 'Hot Rats', and HR was more than merely a start in reviewing Jazzrock: it was so good I'm not sure Jazzrock ever progressed after HR.
But here are a few suggestions:
Birds Of Fire
Introducing The Eleventh House (Larry Coryell)
BTW, I accidentally helped name a jazzrock album in 1977. I was at a music club in NYC (a Punk Club- it was LATE '77, and you know what that means), when a guy sat next to me and told me he was Chick Corea's manager; "I'm trying to come up with a title for Chick's next album."
For something to say, I pointed to the middle-aged Punk on the stage: "doesn't he look like the Mad Hatter?"
"Thank you!" Chick's manager exclaimed, and he left the club immediately.
In 1978 an album titled "The Mad Hatter" was released by Chick Corea. And later a couple of recording studios by that name were established.
