I have just listened to other transcriptions of this song sung by her, and this performance is different. It would be interesting to compare performances to see if she repeated herself. I notice the triplets in the phrase at m. 46-49 is here but not in the others. The triplets over the half note scale passage followed by eighth notes in m. 86-89 is unexpected and rhythmically inventive. One wonders how she learned to scat. She is singing around the chord tones of seventh chords and chromatic harmony, and adding chromatic passing tones. Some of the chords she must have been hearing as ninth chords. Sometimes she repeats a pattern sequentially, such as m. 62-63, and m. 30-34 even though not fitting the harmony, the ear accepts it. She will repeat the dominant note at the end of phrases, like a pedal point. She had an amazing ear, and likely scatted intuitively without analysis.
