Just a few thoughts; there are many more.

Hehe, I'm sorry but your recommendations seemed very traditional to me. Some slightly more modern, but still didn't sound this millennia... :)

 

Electro Deluxe was a notable exception, really nice. Thanks! That was a hip-hop jazz crossover I hadn't heard of before. Almost to sugary sweet American and clean for me, though, but I bought it! (Sounded a bit like Nisse Landgren Funk Unit, even, more funk than jazz.)

 

 

Ah, I misread your original post - that you were looking for recent stuff.  Threadgill still fills the bill.

Found it on iTunes as well. Very cool, thanks! Quite funky as well.

 


If you'd like to hear their performance at the Newport Jazz Festival last August you can find it on NPR. It's about an hour long and they play 2 songs that aren't on that album.

Electric Masada, specifically the album "At the Mountains of Madness" keeps the vain of Bitches Brew but with a much different flavor.

Another vote for Jaga Jazzist.  Also I have been enamored by The Claudia Quintet and Kneebody,  both bands flexing some progressive muscle.
