comment How to play barre chords high up on the neck
The song was written for and recorded on a Fender Stratocaster-type electric guitar, upon which one can play chords up to the 20th fret. If you want to play the exact same arrangement, you will need an electric guitar of that design. Otherwise, figure out your own chord voicings that enable you to play the same chord progression and notes in a lower register, and/or transpose the song to a different, lower key.

comment Do all jazz musicians [in a band] need to know a song's melody?
I think the more you know about any song, the better you can play it. If you have time to learn the melody, do so. Somebody may throw you a solo, and starting with the melody is always a good idea. If you have time to learn the lyrics, it could not hurt.

comment Is the action of my guitar really high?
Yes, it is too high. Take it to a professional guitar technician at a music store and pay them for a setup.

I have no idea. Why don't you write to them and ask?
