Hi! I am looking for some modern jazz plectrum players to listen to (from 70s onwards). Anybody have any recommendations? Thanks!

I very much like what Cynthia Sayer does. Also Don Lewers.

In this area, Ronnie Sluga is still the king.

I'm going to move your topic to the Playing Advice (4 String) forum. I think you'll get more answers as there are people on that forum that play/listen to jazz.

Rob Mackillop who often uses a Deering 5 string without the fifth string for a plectrum.

My 2 cents worth:
One cannot go wrong listening to Harry Reser / Perry Bechtel / Buddy Wachter / Eddie Peabody. All the greats. All plectrum styles are different.

Sean Moyses, you don't live a million miles away from him in Ely. He might be open to lessons.

Ever wonder what Limehouse Blues would have sounded like if it had originally been a Samba?  Here's a great modern plectrum artist who stands apart: Pat Dineen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlKS8plBvzo

I can say if these guys ever release a CD, I'm going to buy it immediately. Incidentally, that's exactly the way I'm dreaming to play my banjo.

the Two Man Gentleman Band does about half their songs lead singer Andy Bean on what appears to be plectrum banjo (wikipedia lists him as playing a tenor guitar for the rest - although I thought I saw somewhere that he has played a plectrum guitar as well).

I read somewhere that he plays a tenor guitar tuned to plectrum, not followed it up to check that but those are cgbd chord shapes (as opposed to Chicago I was thinking) in the video.
