    Well, if you are into brass/saxophone then I highly recommend Boney James, Chris Botti, Rick Braun, Dave Koz, Warren Hill, Paul Taylor, and any of the Marsalis brothers (Wynton, Branford, Delfeayo, or Jason).

    For guitar, ANYTHING by Norman Brown!!!!!!!

    And for Piano, Alex Bugnon and/or Brian Culbertson are sure to please.

    I would say the most popular/successful modern artists that don't sound too much like the 'oldies' would be:

    Branford Marsalis

    Joshua Redman

    Brad Mehldau

    Chris Potter

    Kurt Rosenwinkle

    Dave Holland
