The jazz musicians' equivalent of a sex tape.

I just found out about a super-secret super-smooth jazz record. Are there others out there?

I just learned from a very reliable source that an adventurous jazz group that is located, in terms of style and stature, somewhere between The Bad Plus and Vijay Iyer, recently made the smoothest of smooth jazz recordings in order to pay for their upcoming tour. The CD credits are all pseudonyms.
Have any other examples of this surfaced?
Once you know who is playing on this recording, the smooth jazz sounds just a little off, like the players weren't able to completely shed their style and training. If you were trying to do some detective work to discover other recordings like this, what telltale remnants of their usual technique would you listen carefully for?
