That's the problem. Our directors would prefer us to write out a solo and memorize it
I'm still back with Wade, trying to come to grips with the oxymoron.

But if you have to memorize an original solo that you improvised/composed and wrote out, then yeah -- turn on the recorder, blow a few dozen choruses over the changes, then go back and write down the phrases that you like. Then cut and paste them around and see if you can construct a nice logical solo that carries through the entire chorus. You might even get 1 good solo out of just blowing. Write it down. Lather, rinse, repeat.
