If you don't like jazz guitar, you're missing Joe Pass, Wes Montgomery, George Benson, João Gilberto, Django Reinhardt, Charlie Christian, Grant Green, Jim Hall, John McLaughlin, Earl Klugh, Eric Gale, Larry Carlton, Laurindo Almeida, Lee Ritenour, Ralph Towner, John Abercrombie, Herb Ellis, Al Di Meola, Lenny Breau , John Scofield, Charlie Byrd, Allan Holdsworth, Larry Coryell, Gabor Szabo, Stanley Jordan,
Tal Farlow, Pat Metheny, Kenny Burrell, Barney Kessell, Grant Green and Jim Hall, to mention but a few. You can find a fairly short though quite precise article about the history of the jazz guitar here https://www.guitarchords247.com/the-history-of-jazz-guitar/. As for the drums, though not always at the forefront of jazz pieces, they do play an important part in the formation of jazz, especially when irregular time signatures are used. I do, however, get your point and I can and do enjoy jazz groups, such as trios, for example piano, bass and saxophone make a great combo
All music created by black people was stolen by white that made more money with this kind of music than their creators... All because racism. Look at for Rock and Roll, there are lot of racists playing a music created by niggers. Black people that were humiliateds in the beginning of the genre, suddenly appear Presley - a white guy - and usurped all their space. Today the situation is worst. Because of this all white person playing Rap is so ashamed, 'cause white people already stole a lot of this all. I know a few metal and Rock bands with black people, and all people seeing this black person think strange a nigger playing Rock and Roll instead rap music. As a black man that I am, I know what I mean, maybe white people do not understand it. USA is the most racist country in the world, republicans and democrats, new Germany Nazi. Shame on y'all.

"Jazz was a lot easier to understand back in its heyday, because it was mostly based on well-known midcentury pop songs. If you went to hear Miles' band perform, you would have recognized almost every tune they played. You would have been able to enjoy the difference between the conventional arrangement of a given tune and the intellectual abstractions that Miles applied. Jazz listeners now are at a big disadvantage. Unless you're a real showtune buff, you're not likely to be familiar with most of the raw material that the jazz musicians are working with. No wonder people find jazz difficult or tedious. [Today's] jazz world is rife with snobbery toward pop music listeners who are supposedly too unsophisticated to keep up with them. But we need to remember that in its prime, jazz was commercial music. Miles Davis had some legitimate jukebox hits with recordings that we now venerate as high art (and rightly so!)" https://www.quora.com/How-does-Jazz-work/answer/Ethan-Hein
I like my Jazz only instrumental. Charlie Parker, Kenny Burrell, Hank Mobley, Miles Davis, The Dave Brubeck Quartet are some of the jazz musicians I often listen to. Jazz Fusion is also great (like John McLaughlin and Allan Holdsworth for example). I also like to mention The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, they mix jazz with electronic and ambient stuff and they're amazing (or alas, "were", they split up).
