I love jazz, but it seems like all of today's jazz is just mellow smooth jazz. Jazz on the radio is all boring slow tunes that you only hear in elevators and dentists' offices. And all the jazz clubs I've been to are dimly lit, super quiet, full of over-the-hill musicians who sound more like Lawrence Welk than Duke Ellington.When did the Kenny G style take over jazz? What happened to the dancing, swinging big bands, or the angry, frantic beboppers? What happened to the jazz-funk fusion of the '70s? Why has it been almost 40 years since someone made jazz music that doesn't put you to sleep?There's some upbeat jazz today, but it's all spread to other genres: "jam bands" like Medeski, Martin, and Wood. "Turntablists" like DJ Logic, and "Techno DJs" like St. Germaine. And the sounds these groups make is about 10% jazz, and 90% rock, hip-hop, or electronica. So where the hell does a jazz fan find good jazz that doesn't bore him to tears?

Please help.

I did not find the right solution from the internet.
