When was the last jazz record put out?

Uzi said the last jazz record of any kind was "Quasar" by the Jimmy Giuffre 4 (1985).

But I figured it was "Journey, Man!" by Jack Walrath and Hard Corps (1996).

But Herbie Hancock's latest came out in 2007--does that count?

Uzi is a tosser. The last jazz album clearly was New Traditions in East Asian Bar Bands by John Zorn, put out on his Tzadik label.

At least that confirms that no new jazz has come out since the mid-1990s.

I just ordered this one from 2008. I'm optimistic that it might be jazz (even if dated jazz), I've got my fingers crossed (it has tunes by Elvis, The Duke, and Kermit):

Update:

Jack Walrath's "Ballroom" is, in fact, quite a good record for the current century.

As I expected, no breakthroughs since the Mingus period (Jack started out with Mingus).

Not the last one but a pretty new one (and highly recommended too):

Mostly Other People Do The Killing - The Coimbra Concert (Clean Feed, 2011)

Based on the samples online, my (intuitive) reaction is that's it's jazz and it's not backward looking. I'm gonna get it. Cool

Let me know what you think!

I like "Mostly Other People" a lot.
Their double bass player "Moppa" Elliott writes all of the tunes and arrangements. An extremely gifted young man.
Their saxophone player, Jon Irabagon, released a very interesting solo record as well.
It's called "Foxy" and contains a set of variations of Rollins' "Doxy" (including "Unorthodoxy", "Proxy" and "Chicken Poxy").
Their most famous member, however, is their trumpet player, Peter Evans. You might have heard of him.

Amazon says I'll have it by the end of the month. This will bring me not only into the current millenium, but even into the current decade. Cool

Initial reaction (I'm only on track #2)--the first word that comes to mind is "sassy," maybe even "snarky," but in a good way. The 12-bar and rockin' or boogying parts might be parody, but I like that (I liked it way back when Benny Goodman parodied Ted Lewis, and all those Phil Napoleon-led groups parodied the "Micky-Mouse" sound).

It's a good listen. Sometimes it seems to fall into free jazz, but I wouldn't call it a Free Fall (it's not over my pinhead, I don't feel out of my depth). And (since I am, after all, a pinhed) there is no genre confusion--I don't have to ask myself "Is it really jazz?"

I think this goes with the best (best for me, that is) of the new millenium, like the latest releases from Randy Sandke and Jack Walrath.

There's just one thing abut that record that confuses me--why do all the photos in the insert show a musician at a piano keyboard, when there's no piano on the record? scratch

Listening again, I am struck more than ever by the insouciance.

Also, there is much traditional thematic material--Gershwin's "Our Love is Here to Stay," and "Night in Tunisia," and like that.

In terms of release date--the most recent jazz record is now this one (August 2011)--let he/she who has a newer one bring it on

As much as I like Jack, I have to say that in his latest he seems to have mostly stopped pushing the envelope.

So these days I'm mostly listening to MOPDTK.

I should thank Tiny one more.
Some time back I was going through this thread and thanks to it came across MOPDTK.
Some jolly great fun!

It's because all of their album covers (so far) are parodies of famous jazz record album covers.
"The Coimbra Concert" refers to Keith Jarrett's (in)famous "Koln Concert" - thus the pianist.

It's 2013--we must find out what's new before we all get hardening of the categories. Neutral
