Modern jazz or swing music?
I'm looking for some new music and I want some bands that have a modern jazz and swing sound to them. Anyone have any suggestions?

try listening to www.kcsm.org for a while. They play a wide variety of jazz 24/7. if you listen long enough you'll hear something you like, guaranteed. And its free! different DJs have different styles, so if you don't like what you hear, try listening at a different time. Some good times to listen might be Sunday AM for the American Jazz Countdown, basically the top jazz hits of the week, and at night the Bob Parlocha show. Bob seems to find great music that I never hear elsewhere; he's turned me on to some awesome guitarists that I would never have heard of otherwise.
