Not bass-centric per se...
The Brecker Brothers are well-known for composing angular horn lines...
Steps Ahead had Mike Brecker as a member for awhile...so they have some angular tuneage.
John Scofield, too. IIRC, "Scofile" from a John Patitucci album (Sketchbook
) would be JP's nod to Scofield. Maybe even "Spaceships" from the same album, IIRC.
Others with some tunes with angular heads/melodies-
Alain Caron (Leni Stern's "Bubbles" from Like One
Allan Holdsworth ("Devil Take The Hindmost" from Metal Fatigue
Mike Stern ("Chromozone" w/ Mike Brecker)
The Flecktones ("Life Without Elvis" from UFO TOFu
"Smash" by Avashai Cohen
"Free Man" by Screaming Headless Torsos
"Pride" by Living Colour?
