Best Jazz Music

How do you define what is the best jazz music around at the moment. Its really difficult question and one which requires serious thought and energy. If you consider the likes of what I would call “true jazz” players like Christian Scott or Avashai Cohen then other spectrums of jazz are often thought of in a less than favourable light. Any mention of Jane Monheit or Michael Buble would be quashed immediatly by any true jazz listener. Conversely, more outside music might be considered a step too far and most avant-garde free jazz would probably be thrown out with the rubbish. I`m not really sure what my point is here but I believe it`s somewhere along the line of – listen to it all and decide by how it sounds and not base your judgement on genre!
