I've got a chord progression, and need to know what scale to use over it.

It's

Cmaj7 Dm7 Em7
for the bulk of the solo, but it ends on Dmaj7.

I know I should prolly use a mode, right?

C major, really. You could mix in a few modes over the different chords, but C major works easily. Just switch to D major or D lydian on the D major 7.

Don't concentrate too much on scales though; use the melody and chord tones, and connect the chord tones with notes from the scales, at least when starting out.

Exactly, there is no particular "jazz scale" it's all about how you use them and really it's more about the chord tones than the scales.
