    For me the one that hits the spot is Mo Foster – Bel Assis [MMC CDP 7 904552] :)

    The line-up for various tracks:
    Mo Foster – Bass, Keyboards
    Simon Philips – Drums
    Gary Moore/Ray Russell – Guitar
    Stan Sulzman – Sax
    Frank Ricotti – Vibraphone
    Peter Van Hooke – Electronic Percussion
    Dave Defries – Trumpet
    Sal Gallina – Electronic Wind Instruments
    Rod Argent – Keyboard

    I also use Uriah Heep’s - Demons & Wizards, but that for a different type of chill-out! :laugh:

    Handsome Family - Any of the albums though the first one is a little different.
    Dread Zeppelin - Un Led Ed (good for those dancy type moments ;) )
    Floyd - Any album (obviously)
    Neu - Neu75 (freaky)
    The Beta Band - The Three EP's
    Kate Bush - Hounds of Love (very relaxing)
    Nick Lowe - The Convincer
    Gabriel Minnikin - Hard Feelings (self released album, you ain't gonna get it easily!)

    and the cream of the crop:

    Robert Wyatt - Cuckooland/EP's Box set/Shleep or Rock Bottom

    Not that I like to chill out much :D :smoke:

    If I’m chilling out I like some mellow jazz like Bob James or Grover Washinton or like the voices of Nat King Cole or Marvin Gaye.
    If I’m relaxing I like something like Secret Garden or Henry Mancini or something classical

    I agree with the above . . . anything AIR or Zero 7.

    I actually just so AIR perform last month and they were amazing live. Does anyone know of any music that is similar to theirs? I'm thinking maybe Dead Can Dance?
