The year 2020 wasn't just another year, it was an extremely strange time around, and not much different speaking about jazz scene as well.  Lot of albums' releases were postponed, and then plenty of vault materials has been released, often of lower than average quality. Few good archival albums came still.

English jazz scene is still on the top, possibly there are not so many unexpected new music, but it still produces most youthful and fresh jazz around. 

Shabaka & The Ancestors - We are Sent Here By History
Nubya Garcia - Source

American (pre-dominantly New Yorkian) mid-generation creative jazz as often generates plenty of strong albums

Peter Evans - Being & Becoming
Kirk Knuffke - Brightness: Live In Amsterdam
Jim Black - Recon
Whit Dickey - Morph
Joel Harrison+18 - America At War
Jason Robinson - Harmonic Constituent
Noah Preminger - Contemptuent
Aruan Ortiz - Inside Of Rhythmic Falls

Of jazz veterans releases, this one I possibly like the most

Charles Lloyd - 8:Kindered Spirits

And for the end - one very strong album from Japan

Bonjintan -Dental Kafka
