I see.  A few 'solo' bass notes are surely anti-something somewhere.
Suggesting it can go a long way.  Not just the absence, but the
suggestion of it.  To make it stand out as such and not just be
something taken off.  Even if it's only for 15 seconds or so.  Not just
taking something off but actually making it anti-solo, even if this
sounds paradoxal.  Listeners might very well pick up on the suggestion.

Looks like the first mix out of 32Cv4 will be the remixing an \old\ one
in which the piano goes solo overboard. :)
