1, lets say a lead sheet says E7 could you play E9 or E13 over it instead to add some color or would that interfere with the harmony im guessing not cause the notes arent altered theyre still part of the scale right? unless you play E7b5 where its suppose to be E7 that would cause issues cause of the b5 right?

2, how would you go about working on a more legato horn-like phrasing? any specific tips?

3, any comping advice tips etc

talk you mt for all your help

If a lead sheet says E7, you could play anything in E over that part, not just extensions of the chord. You could play Esus4 if you wanted, or a short lick. That's the whole point of a lead sheet; improvised rhythms and your own interpretation of what it says.

Legato is hammering on and pulling off with your fingers, so play a note (say open A) then hammer a finger on to the fretboard (whichever note you play, maybe 3rd fret which is a C) with enough force to make the new note sound. I don't understand what you mean by horn-like phrasing though...

By comping advise do you mean composition? That parts entirely down to however you like to write. The best way imo is to mess about ubtil you find something you like, play something else, then go back to it. If you can remember how it goes then it's good. Then play it and see where it wants to go. That's just me though. Other people have a very systematical approach to writing so just experiment and see what you like doing.

hmm cool on the lead sheet part i get it

by horn like phrasing i mean like wind instruments how to make your phrasing more like a trumpets or a saxophone or flute or any other type of horn

by comping i mean accompanying the soloist using chords etc

In Jazz, the term "comping" is short for "accompanying."

You dont even have to play an E chord, you COULD play a Bmi7 chord, or any imaginable chord containing a D and a G#

2, how would you go about working on a more legato horn-like phrasing? any specific tips?
learn to outline the chords in triads, and little chord runs, it helps, and learn to play in a more bebop style, with much more chromaticism.

google the chralston figure. learn it. undertand it. use it.
