How would you guys approach this chord sequence?

(concert key) D+ Gmaj7/B D+ Gmaj7/B

The progression repeats itself for the duration of the piano solo on the original recording.

One way to go is to find the common tones, and also find the moving tones:

Common tones between the two chords:
D, E, F#

Moving tones (D+7 to Gmaj/B)
C to B
C to C#
A# to B
A# to A
F# to G

Play a simple idea over the first chord, then use as many common tones as you can, and adjust those tones that need to change.
