This is the standard written by Vernon Duke. It's a tune that I've always really liked ever since I heard a version by Dexter Gordon years ago.
My original idea was for a pretty straight run through of the tune but it never really seemed to work within the "randomized" concept so I decided to turn it into a "drone" piece. I isolated notes from the melody (which is basically a scale anyway) and looped them so when shuffled they would form constantly shifting chords, sometimes dissonant, sometimes consonant but always changing slowly.
