This list of the top post-bop bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Post-bop groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all post-bop bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest post-bop bands of all time, since the most famous post-bop artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best post-bop music.

You can click on the post-bop band names to see more information about that particular notable post-bop group. If they're near the top of the best post-bop artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available.

The list you're viewing is made up of many different items, including Billy Cobham and Medeski Martin & Wood. Every time you vote for your favorite items, they get a better chance of making it to the top of the list. Do Vinnie Colaiuta or John McLaughlin belong on this list? If so, vote for them.

The list includes all new post-bop bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of post-bop, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into post-bop music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good post-bop bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent post-bop bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best post-bop bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest post-bop musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular post-bop bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
