Blessed Relief is the closest Frank got to being more jazz than Zappa, if you know what I mean. All of The Grand Wazoo and Wazoo is he most jazz Frank ever got.

I enjoy all the ones already mentioned, but can we talk about Big Swifty and King Kong on MAJNH. That's one of my go-to's when craving some jazzier Zappa.

Frank definitely was inspired by jazz, or jazzy things. You can hear at least a little bit of jazz, whether in chords or phrasing, etc. in almost every Zappa album. All those albums with Tommy Mars and other late-70s/80s albums, there is fusion/jazz all over the place, sometimes obvious, sometimes not.
