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.

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.

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.
