Nice playing Lionel, I don't know that anyone would laugh at you though. So, I was wondering about the Coltrane connection to Mile's Solar, a tune Trane isn't even on. What I think you're working on is the "sheets of sound" thing that Trane developed in the mid-late 50's. I say, keep going with it until you wear it out, and then move on to something new. That's how we learn. By the way Dave Schildkraut is the alto player on Mile's version of Solar, are you familiar with him? He plays a great solo on it.

Thanks for listening, yes I "know" Dave Schildkraut, a man who played like Parker with a Paul Desmond sound or kind of. Yes you're right about Coltrane, the things he used to play when he was still playing tonal tunes. I didn't know it was called "sheets of sound".
I really thank you, I learnt a lot today.
