I have been analysing and learning Donna Lee. I came across a thesis analysing Charlie Parker's style. Thought that might help but can't find it again. Any help appreciated. Some things I noticed: arpeggios starting on thirds and going to 9 or 11. Lots of flat9 tonic flat7. Fifteen consecutive notes in a chromatic run. Nice sequence near the start. Many bars easy to learn because of connection with current chord.

Thanks. That is the one I had in mind. Lots to go at there but I haven't found Donna Lee maybe because it is also attributed to Miles Davis
