Who's like Brubeck who isn't Brubeck?

As happens about once a year, my dear boy has lately been stuck hard on Dave Brubeck. I love Time Out as much as he does, but I’m getting a little burned out. What other artists of albums might he enjoy?

We listen to a lot of jazz, so we’re pretty well covered on all the basic Miles Davis/John Coltrane/Thelonious Monk/ McCoy Tyner bases, so what modern or classic jazz are we missing? Our favorite stuff isn’t too experimental and retains a nice sense of swing. Who should we be listening to in order to fill that particularly Brubeckian itch without getting Blue Rondo a la Turk etched permanently on my ear drums?
