what songs do you love to solo over the changes? ive recently just love the changes in "Lady Bird"
the Cmaj to F-7 Bb7 is just fun to solo over
Rhythm changes, took me forever to learn it and I still screw up half the time.

Freddie Freeloader, very straight forward and there is plenty of room to take lines with space between them.
I think my favourite would be a modified minor twelve bar blues with I-IV-VII or I-IV-VI progressions
"in your own sweet way"

"my one and only love" (specifically the chromatic bass movement of 5-#5-6 in the A)

the second ending from "on green dolphin street"

"softly as in a morning sunrise" (I can get lots of
mileage out of those few chords in a solo)

"there will never be another you"/"s'posin" (same thing as before. Eb and Cm are good keys for my solos)

"on the sunny side of the street" (has a V7/vi AND the chromatic bass motion nebtioned before, although some just play it as a ii-V to vi although it's fundamentally the same thing since Bo7 is the upper structure of a G7 and E7b9's upper structure is G#o7)
