    Wow, the list of all the rhythm changes tunes is a goldmine!

    I was not aware of Billy Bean - those are strong clear lines!

    Thank you!

    bar two is also grant green's favourite and most recorded lick.

    Gotta start somewhere!

    Yes, Grant Green's SMPWC solo is basically that one lick with a few other notes as an added bonus.

    Not an easy one, but Suspone (composed by Mike Stern) was the first Rhythm Changes that I heard:

    I practice rhythm changes at 55 bpm and improvise continuous 32nd notes in the right hand. Keith Jarrett ballad style.

    The orange cover Joe Pass book has some nice solos for those who not good at transcribing. Aimee Nolte has some good stuff too for ear players.
