Play each chord as an arpeggio. Experiment with different ways to play (“voice”) the arpeggios.

I came across your post in which Ed Coogan wrote that part of his approach
to jazz improv is to memorize the chords. I have been struggling with this
myself--hope you can clarify.

Do you just memorize the names of the chords, or do you actually play the
progression? And if you play them, How do you do that, if the harmonica has
so few full chords?
