    It looks pretty straight forward to me.

    BbMaj7#11| A7#9| Dm9 Db7| Cm7 F7b9|

    BbMaj7| A7b13 |Dm6(9)|

    E7#9 |Am9 |Dm9|

    (ENDING)
    BbMaj7#11| A7#9 |Dm6(9)|

    Few things.

    1. Why not buy a jazz fake book/Real Book. This supports the people that write the songs and ensures that you have a reasonably good lead sheet. (Not perfect according to some).

    2. If you are just having problems with for instance "Bbmaj#11" those chords can be simplified down. That's not a weird chord it's just a Bb Major 7 chord with some extra notes. You can figure out the other notes later (try using your major scale to figure them out). A7#9? Bah, it's just an A dominant 7 you can worry about the embellishment later.

    i have a problem on how to lay them out on the fretboard. i belive i am voicing them wrong like i'm not sure what notes i could omit and which ones should be most prominet. if some could write just a few of the chords in tab so i could clearly see them that would great.

    thanks

    ps

    are the notes in the BbMaj7#11

    Bb D F A C F

    just want to make sure i'm building these right

    neg, imo they are Bb D A #E (omit F) I't Maj7 with flatted 5th(E#).(like I think it of it).F the perfect 5th would clash with E#.
