Who is the best jazz drummer of 2016?

Which drummer got your jazz juices flowing?

Jazz drumming has morphed and evolved considerably over the years, reaching a point where the classic styling of jazz greats like Elvin Jones and Max Roach collide with the absolute cutting edge of improvisation and eclectic influences including hip-hop and electronic music.

The drummers on this list cover the full gamut of jazz, are all actively leading the way on the global jazz drumming scene - in many cases leading their own jazz groups amongst other projects too - and inspiring the next generation of players. Time to crown this year's king of jazz.
