21st Century Jazz
420 artists, 5758 songs
From the unique avant-garde style of guitarist Bill Frisell to the pop- and R&B-influenced smooth jazz of Fourplay, today's jazz scene offers something for everybody. Herbie Hancock embodies the spirit of jazz today, simultaneously pushing the genre's boundaries with electronic and funk/hip-hop influenced recordings while paying tribute to past masters like Gershwin, Coltrane and Miles Davis. Female jazz perfomers like Diana Krall and Cassandra Wilson enjoy critical acclaim and commercial success, while the groove-heavy music of artists like Charlie Hunter and Medeski, Martin and Wood have made jazz hip to a new, youthful audience.
