Among the current ones I believe that Snarky Puppy is champion. I enjoyed them lots recently.

Avishai Cohen....Dark Knights- really well played trio.
Phonesis.....Life To Everything- great live lp.
A number of releases on the ACT label. https://www.actmusic.com/Alben/Alle-Alben
I own a number of these on vinyl. A mix of traditional, straight ahead jazz with a contemporary feel. Enjoy nearly all their releases.
A couple of new releases I've really enjoyed so far this year are:
Ben Goldberg - Orphic Machine
JD Allen - Graffiti
Vijay Ayer - Break Stuff
Myra Melford - Snowy Egret
Sound Prints - Live at the Monterey Jazz Festival (though it doesn't do justice to the several shows I've seen the band play over the last couple of years)
As the year nears its end, I wanted to mention an overlooked beauty. The recording I keep coming back to the most this year is the Ran Blake recording "Ghost Tones".
Sadly no YouTube music yet, but Amazon has some short clips to let you hear what the music is about about. Many good to great reviews online.
+1 : Avishai Cohen....Dark Knights- really well played trio.
Maybe I'm the only one who didn't know but there are two jazz musicians named Avishai Cohen. The one mentioned above is sax player, the other who is better known to some, is a tremendous bassist. His live album is amazing,
"As Is… Live at the Blue Note".
I guess you can never have too many Avashais! Cheers,
Charenee Wade: "Offering", the music of Gil Scott-Heron, is a new album I've been playing over and over, hearing it on a different level each time. There are a number of reviews on this music, all of them favorable. Here is one of the reviews;
This music can be found on "you tube", I would like to hear your opinion.
Enjoy the music.
