Here´s the chord/melody, guitar arrangement.
...and the transcribed lines.
The first line starts with a 2-5-1 chord progression in major.
(Fm7 - Bb7 - Ebmaj7) where I´m playing inside with arpeggios.
I also use chromatic passing tones leading into the Ebmaj7 chord.
On Ab7#11 I ´m playing the Dominant Lydian scale.
On the following chords Bbmaj7, Em7b5 and the A7b9 I´m also
using inside arpeggios and land on the minor 3rd to Dm7.
The 2nd soloing line starts with 2 -5 in minor (Am7b5 - D7) but it´ll goes to a G7#5 instead of the Gm7 chord
Here I land on chord tones as the Root on Am7b5, the major 3rd on D7 and the major 3rd on G7#5.
On G7#5 I continue the line with playing the Whole tone scale ending with a pentatonic thing on Cm7.
Furthermore on Ab7#11 I´m playing the Dominant lydian scale that´s the same as the Eb melodic minor scale.
I finish the line with a major scale phrase to the Bbmaj7 chord.
The 3rd line starts with two 2-5 in minor. (Dm7b5 - G7b9 - Cm7b5 - F7b9)
On the 2-5 chord progression I like to play on the melodic minor scale.
To Dm7b5 - G7b9 I use the F minor melodic scale and on Cm7b5 - F7b9 the Ebminor melodic scale. There´s an interesting sound from that scale
to these chords that I like.
The end of this line I´m playing a rhytmic sequence with the Bb major scale to the Bbmaj7 chord all the way to the Em7b5 chord.
