    Hard Bop?

    Hi - been a rock guy all my life and discovered jazz about 2 years ago - started with an Art Blakey album and all I now listen to is Art, Horace Silver, Clifford Brown, Lee Morgan, Cannonball, Hank Mobley, and while not hard bop, I love Buddy Rich. So...I'm nuts about hard bop. Who else am I missing? Any current musicians that fall into this category I would groove to? Thanks!
