About the Backing Track
Chord Progression: 

II:   Cm7   I   F7    I   Bbmaj7   I   G7   :II  


You will hear extended versions of these basic chords on the track... as is common in jazz of course :) 
In theory, you can play Bb major scale over all of the first 3 chords and then switch to C harmonic minor for the G7 chord.

Cmin7 arpeggio = C Eb G Bb
F7 arpeggio = F A C Eb 
Bbmaj7 arpeggio = Bb D F A 
G7 arpeggio = G B D F 

Playing Bb Major scale will result in Bb Ionian (Bbmaj7 chords), C Dorian (Cm7 chords) and F Mixolydian (F7 chords) - all the same 7 notes...
Next up, try out some more advanced colours on the dominant chord (F7/F13) by using the 

F diminished 1/2-1 tone scale = F Gb Ab A B C D Eb (F) 
And you can also try out the Altered Scale (Superlocrian) on G7! 

G Superlocrian Mode - G Ab Bb B Db Eb F (G)
