Hi,
I've recently accidentally ended up in a jazz band as a pianist.
I am not a jazz pianist and have no clue what I'm doing. I've played classically trained pianist so I have no trouble reading but if someone could give me a hand coming up with some chord voicing s and comping patterns I would appreciate it.

The piece is Clifford Brown's Sandu and the chords are as follows:
Eflat7
Aflat7
Eflat7
Bflatm7 - Eflat7
Aflat7
Adiminished
Eflat7
Gm7(flat5) - C7(flat9)
Fm7
Bflat7
Eflat7 - C7
F7 -Bflat7

Hello.
First, try to figue out how to play those "dominant 7th chords" (Eflat7, Bflat7 etc..).
They are made essentially of
- the first note on bass (if there is a bass player, no need to play them)
- the major third and the minor seventh of the chord (G and Bflat, in the case of your Eflat7 chord)
- any coloration note like 9th, #11th or 13th (called "extentions" to the chords), to be used wisely.
