Just wondering? Which bop head you do you find very melodic.

Dexterity is a personal favourite of mine.

Conception and confirmation are pretty funky.

Any head that Lennie Tristano wrote is great!

most of the popular bebop tunes are melodic to my earsóthat's why they're such gems. sometimes i like to slow 'em down so everyone can enjoy the nicely crafted melodies.

I didn't know all of these, so I went on a mission! I tried to indicate the artist (who may not be the author, in all cases) and obtain a year associated with the earliest recording I found. Feel free to add your better insight and information.

If you'll indulge me to move out of the '40s and '50s ... I like Mike Stern's writing. Check out the heads to these three examples. I think you'll hear the jazz lineage.

gossip - time in place (1988)
http://ilike.myspacecdn.com/play#Mike+Stern:Gossip:1399151:s28372613.8111229.1120157.0.1.72%2Cstd_61d46e4ac89a81a065dbaeaa5cf38f22

chromazone - time in place (1988)
http://ilike.myspacecdn.com/play#Mike+Stern:Chromazone:2196788:s28372619.8111229.1120157.0.1.48%2Cstd_7fec3ae97f545a4e6ccf6e8fa80cd792

chatter - these times (2004)
http://ilike.myspacecdn.com/play#Mike+Stern:Chatter:381786:s49094740.12583232.1120157.0.2.267%2Cstd_934194cdb4aa4900bbddb97b4e2af957
