    Modern jazz defines a pretty broad spectrum. Here are some of the guys I like:

    Miles Davis
    Ornette Coleman
    Bela Fleck
    Allan Holdsworth
    Mike Stern
    Bob Berg
    Dave Weckl Band
    Tribal Tech
    Vital Information
    Chick Corea
    John Scofield
    Frank Gambale
    Yellowjackets
    - Tom

    depends what instrumentation and style you like really, If you like sax check out courtney Pine , his drummer is mark mondesuir,Like his style a lot, The Yellow jackets with will kennedy is hot especially the recording with 'take 6' the vocal group thats some great stuff.The list is endless dude. I will put a link up from youtube on a well known ditty called 'the chicken' the weckle band do a nice job on this one. also check out 'Got a match' by chick corea electirc band with dave weckle. If you like Guitar I would recommend eric Johnson. I found a real intersesting one though, has anyone heard of tommy emmanuel the guitar player? bet you didnt know he is also a good drummer.
