    Check out this incredible jam with Chuck Loeb and Jeff Lorber. Bass player gets lost at the end of his solo (around 3:40) gets saved by the others.....

    One important lesson I got was playing in a student situation years ago where a bandmate got lost.

    The teacher yelled at me. "Help him!".

    I think it’s about both. The OP asks how to practice soloing while sight reading a chart you’ve never seen before.

I study with a really great Jazz guitarist and he gives me the lessons in notation only so I can read well enough to learn charts and solos properly but I sometimes choke with the pressure of a band. Any tips for practicing with the "pressure"?
