You want me to get going, I could name you 100 black guys with bands who play instruments.

Ha, no one wants to listen to that. Who wants to sit down and listen to contemp jazz other than working jazz musicians and old folks strollin through the bookstore when you can pop in some Lee Morgan, Miles, Horace, Coltrane, Donaldson, Adderley.... and on and on.

OP wants bands with instruments, prolly not. Unless you count MPC's and Turntables, which is definitely arguable.
