 Below is the Jamming with Charlie accompaniment that should be used for your improvisation (C). Wait for the tenor sax soloist to finish then, begin your own improvisation.  At the beginning of the recording it asks you to listen, play the written solo then try improving. Do not worry about playing the written solo as you do not have it.  Begin your improv immediately following the tenor sax solo.
