Big band music can be extremely intricate rhythmically. So, you must watch the bandleader and count like crazy! Eventually you may become familiar enough with the music where you won't have to count all the rests, but generally that is the surefire way to stay with the score.

I am working hard on rhythms at the moment as I am in a Big Band and the music is difficult because it has lots of rests. I play trumpet (third) and I have to count really carefully all the time as all the trumpets have to come in at once. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
