Here is a nice pattern type of line you can use for runs. In the first measure he starts his run off by outlining an F7sus chord over the Eb maj7 chord. From here he plays somewhat of an A pentatonic but is leaving out the root. This gives certain colors over the Dmaj7 chord. The 13 being the B, the C# being the 7, the E being the 9, and the F# being the third. To finish off the run over the Db major 7 he comes down from the 3rd to the 7th, the the 13th, then finishes off with by landing on the #5 which is a nice touch at the end.   For this lick, practice pentatonic patterns up and down, as well as with different rhythmic patterns. Enjoy!
