Interesting, thanks. I'm not great with chord-scale theory, but what's the relationship between the A+ and the F#mM7? I think I'd been hearing it as a rootless mM7, but if I'm thinking clearly without a fretboard in front of me, F# isn't in the A whole tone collection.

Sorry, by the way, to the OP for turning this into a theory geek-out. Another thing about jazz is that tends to happen...

Yes, a B9b5. Or as an A+ added2. The 766 part is an A augmented triad with an added 2 (B note) in the bass which fits because the B fits into the A augmented/whole tone scale. Thus you could also move that same chord up or down by two frets (or four frets) and it would still sub for an A aug triad.

The diatonic 7th chord a third above F#mM7 is Amaj7#5...In both harmonic minor and melodic minor (ascending ...or jazz minor).

Anyway, take away the F#and the notes left from your F#mM7, A-C#-E#, spell an A+. So, the first chord contains the second.

What is a typical right-hand technique for playing these chords?

This just popped up in my YouTube subscriptions. You may find it interesting:
