Here is a solo I made for Charlie Parker's "My Little Suede Shoes."

I wish there was a little bit more context to the piece besides the outline of the melody. 
As far as I can tell, the solo sounds like it should be fine, since it's so fast. But how it looks in relation to Eb major and the chord you have is a little bit different. Just a strange way of presenting it, I guess.

Hi Favi..

I too wish there was more context.. Without hearing the accompanying music, it's pretty hard to judge things.. Your timing, phrasing, pitch all sound fine..  Perhaps you should get in touch with a moderator here at Youngcomposers about including the music accompaniment.. Since this is an educational situation.  and your are not selling your music.  and the excerpts are short. I don't think anyone would get bent out of shape, or go after you for copyright infringement. 

This is a relatively unknown site compared to Youtube.  I doubt anyone would come after you.. Since you are not selling your music, it would be pointless for a music publisher to spend thousands prosecuting you or Youngcomposers.

Thanx for your uploads.  The sax is one of my favorite instruments..

I added the accompaniment.  Hopefully, this is the context you wish for.

Ah, that makes it so much nicer. XD I was curious because that main melody didn't sound entirely jazzy to me at first, so having the chords really helps.
I still standby my statement of some weird chord tones, but really, only when it's a held note. In the beginning of the solo for example, you hold a minor 2nd for longer than the solo notes. Otherwise, it's nice!
