Default A Night in Tunisia

I'm pretty new to Jazz but can anyone recommend some bebop that's similar to the piece "A Night in Tunisia"?

I would really recommend any of the be-bop era Dizzy Gillespie. He really personified the modal be-bop trumpet style. Also check out At Basin Street (live) by Clifford Brown, anything by Charlie Parker, and any earlier stuff by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers (the earliest of which Clifford Brown played on). A Night at Birdland vol. 1. has a fantastic live "hard-bop" version of "Tunisia" on it. Also check out The Charles Mingus Big Band for good measure.
