Hi, can someone recommend a good place to find all the basic jazz chord charts (maj 7 and 6, minor 7, seventh, dim and half-dim) for tenor banjo? Happy to buy a book if I need to. Thanks!

You don't have to buy any books Scot. Go to this site and start reading "The Theory Behind Chord Symbols" by Eddy Davis. Eddy has laid it all out for free. It's in there....every bit of it.

That's pretty comprehensive Rick.
Do you have anything like that for 5 string?
