I play in a big band, lead tenor mostly. But I am a clarinetist at heart. I have developed a very good ear over the years. So long as I can hear the piano, I can lay down a decent melody on top. But when the changes get unpredictable or muddled, it gets a bit rugged.
I was never taught to read changes. Seems to me that a good place to start would be to get a book that has scale studies and arpeggios in every key. If I can memorize, or at least internalize them, I will have better command in those situations. Resource suggestions?
