Here’s another way one can work with “Coltrane Changes”.

The dominant chord is one of the most flexible chords one can deal with. If you checked out the post “Playing over a Dom. 7th Chord”, you know what I mean.

In the attached PDF I have a handful of exercises on “Coltrane Changes” where every dominant 7th chord is altered (b9, #9). The exercises/patterns are more linear than vertical. Check them out!

As a bonus, I’ve included “Improv Etudes” for Alto and Tenor Saxes as an example of how you can integrate some of the techniques.
