Michael J. West

If you are interested in music that "pushes the envelope of bebop without overthrowing its basic conventions," may I suggest Andrew Hill? He is a piano player with bop and Latin roots who plays the most complex, dissonant chordings I've ever heard, and a lot of his best work is newly back in print on Blue Note.

Scott Spiegelberg

I'd also suggest Booker Little, a trumpeter who played with Dolphy a lot. His compositions are sparse yet taut with emotion.
