Hey Tim,

Recently I have been exploring how I can get away from cliches and my own idea/licks and preconceptions of playing a standard tune.

I’ve recorded a small interpretation of “There Will Never Be Another You”. It’s maybe a bit out of the jazz context but the idea remains te same.

Your thoughts on the interpretation woud be nice, but mainly i would like to know if you have some ideas/tools that can be used to “change up” the way you play a standard.
Rubato is probably an obvious one but I would also like to now if there are other concepts/possibilities that allow you to let go of the fixed structures within a tune. (bars, meter, chords, …)

Hi Willem,
This is very nice. There are some very interesting ideas happening in your rubato solo playing.
My opinion is that letting go of the bars(form), meter and chords of the tune means that you are left with the melody. At that point, it would make sense to write a new original song unless you choose to reharmonize the melody. Anything further than that takes you so far away from the composition that it vanishes.
