Remember when Van Halen was good ?
These songs sound like ghosts now.

And we see that GREAT guitar players are a dime a dozen , and not so many great bass players ( rock ).
Billy Sheehan is the most unappreciated rock musician EVER. As funny as this sounds , he inspired me to STOP playing music.

Just remember that there will never be a music trend that comes around from the one that you consider " the best " . New music is created from young , fresh minds that build on the past. I am guilty of holding on to my past , as there were some incredible musicians who have not been " bested " ( my opinion ). May they all be remembered and honored.
Not a " big band " , but perhaps you will like this.

When I was a kid I played Alto Sax,my teacher taught Stan Getz and many others.

Stan Getz, wow, I have some of his stuff.
Over the years I have played the flute, trumpet, guitar, bass, and keyboards. I was a natural at the trumpet but it was not "cool" in high school so I gave it up. After high school when I was out on my own I picked up my first electric guitar. I do ok, but I am no where as good as I would like to be or should be.If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what will never be. (Thomas Jefferson 1816)
