About the Backing Track
Chord Progression: 

II:   Dm7   I   G7    I   Cmaj7   I   Cmaj7   :II  


II:   Gm7   I   C7    I   Fmaj7   I   Fmaj7   :II  

And so forth.... 


In theory, you can start by sticking to the relevant major scale in each key - as in C major scale on Dm7 - G7 - Cmaj7. 

Next up, I'd try outlining the chord tones/arpeggios:

Cmaj7 arpeggio = c e g b 

Dmin7 arpeggio = d f a c 

G7 arpeggio = g b d f 

Playing C Major scale will result in C Ionian (Cmaj7 chords), D Dorian (Dm7 chords) and G Mixolydian (G7 chords) - all the same 7 notes!

Next up, I'd recommend trying out some more advanced colours on the dominant chord (G7/G13) by using the 

G diminished 1/2-1 tone scale = G Ab Bb B C# D E F (G) 

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