Played well as always, but may I say something about the mix? Maybe it´s just me, but the panning of the bass and piano sounds a little extreme; they are "so lonely" on their sides.
That's the nature of the Aebersold backing
I wonder if I cold convert it to mono on an aux track to make it sound more centered? I may try it later...because i also think it's extreme.
just bounce the stereo track to double mono then you can pan the two tracks (that were fully left and right) slightly left and right so it's more centered but still somewhat stereo.
In Cubase I can change the panner of a stereo track from a "stereo balace panner" (the usual one) into a "stereo combined panner" where you can change the stereo range (make it smaller than +90 / -90) and position the narrowed range. Maybe that is possible within you DAW, too.
Another thought: the bt sounds very dry; maybe just a little reverb like captured live on stage?
Just played a little bit with a similar backing track. The first section is the original track; in the second section I added a little reverb (a studio ir) and narrowd the stereo field. In the last section I added a copy of the BT with left / right reversed, not as loud as the original track.
I like the wide stereo, but I wish the backing track had drums on the left and bass centered. I don't know if it's available as separate tracks, it's not hard to change with VST plugins like AOM Stereo Image, or others.
with Aux mono track and some other tweaks
