Hurling gave you some great bari players. I agree you don't want to play coltrane or brecker lines on bari. Bari has it's own style.

I would also have the Charlie Parker Omnibook in your arsenal. While not the traditional bari repertoire (may Brignola and Nimitz forgive me), as a practice aid, it's amazing!

+1 on that. While bari may have it's own style, the language is the same and transferable. Not to mention it will really build your chops... :) Nothing quite like Parker's solo on Donna Lee at 230 bpm on bari.

I think Jackie McLean, even though he's an alto player, would be a great player to transcribe on bari. A buddy of mine and I used to slow him down back in the days of turntables and make note of how much he sounded like Dexter. The lines would fit the bari since they are both Eb instruments, and the style would be very cool.
