When thinking of trad jazz, how do you define "young"? Under 70? 50?  30?
 
The 15-year-old phenom Grace Kelly, altoist and composer, has a healthy  
respect for Jazz' foundations, and is a very strong stage presence.
 
Then, there's 57-year-old Billy Novick (still "young" by some standards,  
especially when you're talking Traditional jazz), of whom the Boston Globe said,  
""Billy Novick...had he lived in the  1930's, would be a legend."
 
I've seen him dozens of times with  the New Black Eagles Jazz Band, and 
totally concur. He's also an award-winning  composer of today.
