There is good news, more good news, and there is bad news: the good news is that the next 4 bars caneasily be analyzed as ii-V7-vi-iii in G. Therefore you can use the G Major scale for 4 whole bars and not have any significant problems.
the bad news is that Charlie Parker probobly wouldn't do it that way. He would likely treat each change independantly, and possibly use Gmaj for the Am7 and Em7 chords, D7 would use D diminished wholetone (or Ab lydian dominant or Eb melodic minor-these are all the same scale, but more on that in some other lesson....) And the A scale for the Bm7 chord.

the other good news is that we only have 8 more measures to analyze.
