Excerpted from Hot Lines on 10 Standards:

Here's my original line on Miles Davis's Solar, only with a CMA7 instead of Miles' CmMA7.

What follows are several examples of chromatic targeting of the melody in a variety of ways, using basic principles of the Linear Jazz Improvisation Method.

The first example is the lead sheet. In the second example, the very first motive, E G A, is transposed throughout in an inside fashion. In the third example the motive is connected to each transposition by a leading tone chromatic targeting Type 1a.

The example at the very bottom is the Simplified Melody Targeted (the melody place on the beat and reduced to quarter notes with targeting in between).
