No one except YOU can answer that for you. Me, I'd go for the 44-60 because I have the perfect active bass(es) in my US Lakland 4-94s. But I could certainly use a great passive Jazz, and my preference is for the Lakland. I suspect with the stuff you're listening to and wanting to play, that the active AJ might be more useful to you.
If there's any way possible to try a few of each before you buy, do that. You're getting ready to spend a good bit of cash, so invest the time and energy to travel if you have to in order to let YOUR ears and YOUR hands help you make the decision.
