try some maj7  like  cmaj7 down to A#maj7 you can do that in jumps or travel down to it chromatically.

 also  Eminor7...F#minor7, Gminor7, to a Fmajor7add9.  I can come up with this stuff all day.

Yeah those chords are cool, also if you want something James Brown style

F9, Eb9, E9, D9, Listen to my track Drum sticks

Used F9 & D9(bar chords), with little add on's which make it a 13th, pinky going one tone up on the first string.

If you want Jazzy Funk

F7flat5, or same but in E, Eb or D, (one of my favorite chords)

Edit**
This is the chord shape i use for E7b5
