Neck pickup is preferred, as it will give you the mellow tone without having to accentuate your bass. Don't roll your mids off or all you will get is mud. Generally, I find heavier strings and the bass and mids settings on my amp around the middle or slightly above, the treble rolled down below mid way, and the tone and volume rolled down on the guitar itself. Flatwound strings are preferred to roundwound, as they reduce the finger noise and spurious noises, which is part of the reason for rolling the tone off in the first place. You want clean, clean sound with a mellow warmth. Experiment a bit with your own setup, as different rigs will respond differently. It also depends on what type of jazz you're playing and what you really like, as well as whether you are just an accompanist in a combo or whether your instrument and playing will be featured prominently.
