In standard notation, '7' without M, m, Maj or min before it indicates a 'dominant seventh' chord -- i.e. one made up of 1-3-5-b7. Most accompanists will add the 9 or 13 (6) to this chord to add interest. In harmony, it is often used to prepare for a resolution to the major or minor chord a fifth below.
