For decades jazz standards have provided improvisers with both a vehicle and a testing ground for their creativity. In some cases they have taken more liberties than others. This week we focus on not-so-standard renditions of jazz standards, from "Take Five" to "My Favorite Things," from "Mood Indigo" to "'Round Midnight," two hours of jazz played with boundless creativity (and a good dose of humor!).
