Jazz is one of those genres that isn’t catered for particularly well by software instruments. Pianos and maybe drums that can be used for jazz scoring certainly exist in software, but not too much else does unless you want to simply use loops. Solo brass instruments exist too, but they can struggle to sound natural. Yet this is an area that film, TV and game composers do need to compose in. And not all of them are great jazz players in real life.
