There has always been a great emphasis on the legends of jazz in our society. Perhaps this is because the music, in some form or another, has survived for around a hundred years now, and has an inspiring history. However, this historical reflection seems to dominate the dialogue about jazz. After all, it’s not like there aren’t amazing jazz musicians living and making music right now. There are a great many:

Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, Gary Burton, Christian Mcbride, Esperanza Spalding, Hubert Laws, Roy Hargrove, Terri Lynne Carrington, Herbie Hancock, Chris Potter, Regina Carter, Dave Holland, Joe Lovano, Joshua Redman, James Newton, Anat Cohen, Pat Metheny, Kevin Eubanks, John Pizzarelli, David Sanborn, Maria Schneider, Nestor Torres, Roger Glenn, Trombone Shorty, Marcus Shelby…

All of these are living jazz musicians. And there are many, many more. They are doing incredible things on their instruments and in their compositions, moving the genre forward and keeping it very much alive–so much so that some have suggested the term “jazz” is not broad enough to describe all that is happening.
