Overview
Here's an example of utilizing some of our extended chords and inversions over the jazz standard “Blue Bossa”. The original chords are:

Cm7 – Cm7 – Fm7 – Fm7
Dm7b5 – G7 – Cm7 – Cm7
Ebm7 – Ab7 – Dbmaj7 – Dbmaj7
Dm7b5 – G7 – Cm7 – Dm7b5-G7

The basic concept is we can substitute any m7 with a m7 inversion or a minor extended chord (m9, m11 etc.), we can substitute any 7 (dominant) with a dominant 7 inversion, any dominant 7 extended chord (13, 9, 7#5 etc.) or even a diminished chord with any of the diminished notes being one half step above the root note (lesson video on this is annotated in this video, it acts as a 7b9... cool!) and any major7 chord with a major 7 inversion or major extended chord (maj9, maj6 etc.).

This is just one example but the chords I used in this example is:
Cm9 – Cm11 – Fm9 – Fm7
Dm7b5 – G7#5 – Cm7 – Cm9
Ebm7 – Ab13-Ab#5 – Dbmaj9 – Db6/9
Dm7b5 – G7b9 – Cm7 – Dm7b5-G7#5#9

Hope this helps clarify how you can utilize some of these really fun chords. Tabs/chord charts can be found below.
