Well this was posted ages ago, I can't believe no1 replied. I hope you check back and get this.
You seem to understand the modes fairly well. And this sequence is known as a I-vi-ii-V or 1,6,2,5 chord progression.
The simplest way to solo over it is to use the Eb Major scale over the whole sequence. Or the C minor pentatonic scale. Forgive me if you already know that.
To taste up your note choices, you could acknowledge the chords being played by adding hints of arpeggios to your solo (constantly playing arpeggios up and down doesn't result in a nice varied solo, but it's good practice so you can later apply them in short doses). Also try out grace notes from outside the scale. Some of these work better than others.
If you get this, let me know which exact jazz chords you've been learning. Depending on which ones you've learnt I could give you some very interesting applications of them.
If you could show me examples of your playing that would also help. Take care.

Late i know, but for some reason i hadn't notice this post.
From my experience i think that many of us do the same mistake.When we are playing we tend to concentrate on one technique (now i 'll play picking lines,now some legato,tapping.....). Thus we get caught in the same old stuff.Guthrie could play minor pentatonic all day long and never get boring just because he will use all those techniques in a very tasteful way.
Hope that help a little (if you understood my lame english )
