Hey! I realize it has been like a half a year from your question but I noticed it right now and if you are in Estonia I'd be happy to give you some tips- there is a jazz club called Philly Joe's. there is no other place in Estonia where you can find as many cool jazz concerts and especially what you asked for- local composers' music!

For very good jazzbands: Philly Joe´s: http://phillyjoes.com/en Small (for 50people), intimate and very jazzy place. Only for music and drinks. Live concerts almost every night. Littlebit difficult to find, but in the middle of town.

Hi Joardo,

There are a couple of good jazz clubs that you should visit Theater NO99 has a great jazz club but I checked that they don't have a lot going on right now http://no99.ee/tickets/jazzclub Also there's Philly Joe's http://phillyjoes.com/en#
Clazz is more like a lounge but has some good gig coming up http://www.clazz.ee
Last but not least Taff Club https://m.facebook.com/taffklubi/

Some illustrators from younger generation that came to my mind :
https://www.facebook.com/JaanRoomus
http://coucou.ee/
http://konnaelu.tumblr.com/
https://www.behance.net/toomtragel
And if you are Ok to scroll a bit then this group will help you, maybe:

If you are going to spend your time in Tallinn next week then there is a really nice free event that is connected to conceptual graphic design scene:
https://www.facebook.com/events/1722588661330447/

For local jazz bands - then Philly Joe's, as mentioned before. Also there is Viljandi Folk music festival starting this week. http://www.folk.ee/festival/ - there are always some innovative musical collectives and something to find for music enthusiasts. ( + nice vibe, Viljandi is very nice Estonian town)

Don't know about which artists you should know but there is a graphical design collection in the art museum that you can visit by appointment: http://kunstimuuseum.ekm.ee/en/art-collections/graphic-design-collection/
Since there has been a push for digitization in Estonia, you can view the collection online via: https://digikogu.ekm.ee/eng/search?searchtype=complex&searchtext=&ekm_nr=&branch_ids=10
This search result includes all works in the graphical collection.

Not sure about everything you asked, but I'd assume the best place for Jazz is NO99 https://likealocalguide.com/tallinn/no99-restoran and Philly Joe's https://www.facebook.com/phillyjoes
