Not to be confused with traditional Jazz*, "Standards" are sometimes referred to as "lounge" or "easy listening" or "torch." Well, relax and lounge, get ready for some easy listening and torch 'em if you've got 'em. Simply, there's nothing standard about these standards.

*Whereby eight musicians play eight different tunes at the same time. At different speeds. Thrilling.
