I get asked to solo all the time lately in my jazz band. Usually I'm the last one if not the drummer, before we go back into the head. Sometimes I do great and then choke just trying to get back into the head on the last couple of bars of the form (I don't like to make a big rowdy transition that seems jarring, but sometimes I try to wind things down to resolve everything and it seems to fall flat). What are some good ways to practice "escaping" your own solo to go back to walking bass or the head of a chart? p.s.: Oddly enough I have no problems when trading fours, just when I get the whole head to myself and have to transition back into supporting the melody.
