standard deviations

Joe Heinemann

This, the second volume of Clazzimprov is deviations of, or on, Jazz standard repertoire. Hence the "dev/o" before every title. It's part of a disclaimer - these aren't really versions of standards. Since I've deviated from the melodies, the rhythm, the harmonic structure, form, and so on, the only thing tying your perception to a particular song

This, the second volume of Clazzimprov is deviations of, or on, Jazz standard repertoire. Hence the "dev/o" before every title. It's part of a disclaimer - these aren't really versions of standards. Since I've deviated from the melodies, the rhythm, the harmonic structure, form, and so on, the only thing tying your perception to a particular song is your knowledge of the original, and how close or not I come to that. This is why I think people who know this material might find it the most interesting. Hint - let your preconceptions go! More clarification and details in the liner notes below.
