C+7 (#9) Scale Options Needed

I climbing into some Bebop-ish material and need some scale options for the C+7 (#9)

I'm sure there's a GO-TO scale that will fit this nicely. I've been running the chord up and down just listening. Now it's time to start finding and fitting some ideas into the sound.

Lots of other arpeggiated 7th chords will work too:

D-Maj7, Esusb9, Faug, G7+11, A7b13, B-7b5...all derived from the altered scale.

Are you sure you're thinking of C+7(#9) and its corresponding altered scale?

Looks like the chords you listed are diatonic to D melodic minor, and could work over C#+7(#9).
Duke, you got me! I was certainly thinking C#7alt instead of C7alt.

In which case it should Db-Maj7, Ebsusb9, Fbaug (Eaug), Gb7+11, Ab7b13, Bb-7b5, C7alt...
