About the Backing Track
Chord Progression: 

II:   Bm7b5   I   E7    I   Am   I   Am  :II  


II:   Cm7b5   I   F7    I   Bbm   I   Bbm  :II  


Play-along starts 0:30

Scale suggestions: 

(For the first 2-5-1 in A minor)

A minor scale - A B C D E F G (A)  

(Bmin7b5 chords and Amin7 chords)

A harmonic minor scale - A B C D E F G# (A) 

(E7 chords) 

Basic arpeggios: 

Bmin7b5 arpeggio = B D F A   

E7 arpeggio = E G# B D   

Am7 arpeggio = A C E G   

Next up, try out some more advanced colours on the dominant chord (E7) by treating it as an altered chord and using the altered scale:

E altered scale - E F G Ab Bb C D (E)

The altered scale is the mode which starts on the 7th step of the melodic minor scale, so in other words - the notes of E altered scale are the same as those of the F melodic minor scale :) 

....and then repeat in all 12 keys for a proper jazz workout!
