Becoming Something Else: Some Other Time

How does a song move from being a light, minor number in a musical comedy to a moody, profound take on love and lost time, and in turn a jazz standard? Maybe all it takes is one artist -- in this case, Bill Evans -- to live within the song long enough to find what the rest of us missed. It's an old story in jazz. See how fresh "Some Other Time" can sound, the farther it gets from its On the Town Broadway roots.
