    Posted: 23 Jun 2016 at 8:11pm
Hello! I've noticed that this site has great coverage of former Yugoslavia's jazz (& related) artists, but is quite lacking in covering artists that emerged after the break of that country, so I'm suggesting You a few great jazz artists with inclusion of short introduction to artists, links I've found, and a suggestion for a subgenre based on the majority of discography. If You need some further information about releases, album credits etc. feel free to inform me.

Contemp 1. Jazzbina - Post Fusion/Contemporary
https://www.discogs.com/artist/2369230-Jazzbina
An interesting contemporary jazz outfit led by vibraphone player Igor Lešnik that have released three extraordinary albums between 1987 and 1989.

ADDED 2. Elvis Stanić - World Fusion
http://www.elvis-stanic.hr/

He is also the organizer and director of "Liburnia Jazz Festival" as well as the organizer of Jazz Ex Tempore sessions that brought musicians from all over the world to Opatija, and released 4 albums with contributors as Cheikh Tidiane Sekh, Vasil Hadžimanov, Erich Zawinul, Karen Asatrian, Hristo Yotsov, and many more.

Post Bop  3. Darko Jurković Charlie - Post Bop (collaboration album with Goran Končar "Meeting Point" is Third Stream)
Davor Jurković "Charlie" is unique guitar player known for his tapping technique, frequently played on two guitars at the same time.

Added 4. Davor Križić Experiment - Post Bop
Son of a jazz critic and events organizer, and father of a jazz double bass player, Davor Križić is a trumpet and flugelhorn player that has been active on Croatian jazz scene since the nineties, and has released his first solo record "Davor Križić Experiment" with an octet consisting of Davor Križić (trumpet, flugelhorn), Saša Nestorović (tenor saxophone), Luka Žužić (trombone, piano), Elvis Penava (guitar), Joe Kaplowitz (piano), Zvonimir Šestak (double bass), and Kruno Levačić (drums).
