No. But the arpeggios in “Styles” are the foundation of Jazz playing, so the arpeggios get you about one third of the way there. Of course all the scales and modes can be used in Jazz, but “Styles” does not focus on their Jazz usage.
Learning Jazz soloing (depending upon which part of Jazz we’re talking about) places greater emphasis on melody and chromatic sounds (b9, #9, b5, #5). Modal Jazz can focus on a single tonal group (like Dorian for example, or more exotic sounds) but typically Jazz requires greater awareness of individual chord sounds then Blues, Pop, Rock, and Country.
My book “Modern Improvising” (soon to be back in print in a modified form) covered the so-called Jazz scales and progressions.
