Hi guys. I've been looking for some new jazz music to tap to. I'm wondering what some of your favorites might be. I have a lot of the classic jazz and standards - I'm looking for something more modern.

My favorites right now are Roy Hargrove (Ear Food), Corey Wilkes (Cries From The Ghetto, Drop It), and Robert Glasper (Canvas, Double Booked). Wilkes and Glasper work a lot in interesting time signatures and mixed meter songs, great for working on your musicianship and they are probably the two most prolific jazz artists on the scene today.

Also, I'm not sure how many decades your jazz taste spans but you should check out the hard bop jazz artists from the late 50's, 60's 70's, an important evolution in american music that permeates to this day. Herbie Hancock (Fat Albert Rotunda, Thrust) has a ton of awesome albums with great grooves and interesting time signatures. Also Freddie Hubbard (Red Clay, Sky Dive) has a lot of great stuff. Miles Davis too.
