Jaco used to play for Weather Report (best known for "Birdland").

Fela originated Afrobeat by mixing funk & R&B with Nigerian sounds. Antibalas (see antibalas.com) is a new Afrobeat band from Brooklyn.

I haven't heard of those first two, I see you've explained them though, but Jaco and Weather Report are good.
