Swing Gitan

Gypsy Jazz.  I love the twisting chromaticism of this melody.Improv: Use primarily G harmonic minor scale (G-A-Bb-C-D-Eb–F#-G), but you’ll have to acknowledge important chord tones that are NOT part of that scale at key times too.  Examples are the A7 which will have a C# & E, and the Ab chord which will have Ab (of course!) added to the mix.  Mentally, you can switch scales at those points OR just alter the overall scale to include those notes.  I personally tend to combine both those techniques in my brain.  See what works for you…
