Alright, so I'm pretty well clued into most of the jazz greats from the 40s, 50s and 60s - Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Charles Mingus, Ornette Coleman, Ella Fitzgerald, etc. - but I'm looking for some good contemporary jazz. I'm not talking musicians that simply cover the standards or cheesy smooth jazz. I want to hear some good modern day jazz musicians playing original compositions.

Any suggestions?

Also Daniel Carter and groups he's part of Other Dimensions in Music and Test (which includes Matt Heyner on bass of NNCK)

Try "Five Corners Quintet" if you can dig that sort of thing. They're most definitely contemporary.

Also, try anything off the ECM label. It's a very esoteric label, but if you like one recording off it, then you've probably just found heaven.

I'm a fan of saxophonist and composer Chris Potter (http://www.chrispottermusic.com/).

He says
“My aesthetic is based in Bird and Lester Young and Sonny [Rollins]. I want my music to have that emotional impact. What I learned from them in terms of phrasing, sound, approach to rhythm will never be outdated. I would like to basically use the same aesthetic sensibility with more contemporary harmonic and rhythmic concepts, being influenced by classical, world music, funk, rock, rap, country, whatever...digesting new ideas, new influences to keep the freshness alive.”

Sweet, thank you. You know, song suggestions would also be helpful, seeing as I'm stuck with dial-up and need to choose what I download wisely.

I saw a documentary at 3 in the morning last summer focusing on contemporary jazz. There was an amazing american band on there that i wish i'd writen the name down of. I think they had drums, piano and sax and played really dirty sounding punky music, kind of like morphine only 50 times faster, sound familiar to anyone? think they might have been from nyc
