That is something that I've noticed on Spotify and described in Ted Gioia's New Millennium section in his History of Jazz. Many new jazz artists are fuzing it's basic elements with other styles. Admittedly, not something I've looked into in depth yet, but if you were to tell me that was the future of jazz, I'd believe you.
Although, at some point how you define what jazz actually is comes into question.
Live music has been declining since the phonograph. Now that jazz is repertory music and often appears in the same venues as classical, besides composers being influenced by it, it's natural that would mix.
I don't know if it's *the* future, but it's a future, anyway.
