Davy Mooney discusses “Rhythm Changes,” the variations on George Gershwin’s “I Got Rhythm” that are foundational to the modern jazz practice.

He considers the original song, as well as “Lester Leaps In,” “Thriving From a Riff,” Don Byas and Slam Stewart’s amazing 1945 version of “I Got Rhythm,” and John Scofield’s masterclass “Wee” from 2004’s “En Route.”
