What chords and/or modes are commonly used in jazz? I heard there are a lot of mixolydians in there but what are some others?

If there's a jam out there, I'm probably listening to it.

7th chords, maj7s, 9ths, 11'ths 13ths, diminished, augmented, maj/minor...some info on theory would benefit if your getting into jazz....

Lots of extended and altered chords in general.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Remember: A prudent question is one half of wisdom.

chords - 7th chords, extended chords, altered chords
scales - whatever goes with the chords

'tis life
some jazz guitarists will take the chord progressions, and solo in the arpeggio of the same of the chord. im pretty sure of that.

a chord progression in am7 would go with the am7 arpeggio.

correct me if im wrong.
