Im looking for a minor chord progression for jazz. I have to write a song for school and am having a hard time because i am new to jazz. If you could also give me a brief explanation of what scales to use with what chords that would be great.

thanks

a ii-v-i is an extremly common jazz progression, in A minor it would be Bm7(b5)-Em7-Am7

you should start with that.

actually, the V is usualy a dominant seven.
