Maybe associated with that is that I really appreciate "story telling" or development in a solo. Not a full on non-stop thrash at maximum speed, intensity, volume and at the top of the range from the word go. Some simple melodic or rhythmic ideas that are played around with and developed over a chorus or multiple choruses.I want beautiful melody. Memorable melody. The kind that gets stuck in your head and transports you to memories and imaginings that make life worth living. Harmony is a given but I hum a melody. I remember a melody.
Sonny Rollins springs to mind. He could certainly play with fearsome technique and precision and speed but at his magnificent best he was also playful, interesting and memorable.
