I vaguely recall an old movie (forget the name but I think it starred Jimmy Stewart) where someone was asked to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (on a trumpet I think, perhaps for an audition), and the idea was to do what you just did. I am assuming you just started ad-libbing (perhaps you saw the same movie). Great post and an inspiration for me to at least attempt something similar. I guess it is a major milestone in one's journey to be able to just jamb like that. Maybe one day I will be able to do as well. Thanks for posting.

Thanks to you both.

Could that movie be the Glenn Miller Story? This here isn't an improvisation, I have to write things down. The score is at my site

I've been looking at some vids about reharmonization.they did 'Twinkle, twinkle', so I thought I would too. That got me variation 4 without the arpeggios. Changed some things and discovered 'What a wonderful world'. Borrowed the pedal tones in bar 65-67 from one of the videos. After finishing that I tried some counterpoint (var.1) and adding neighbor notes (var.2), after arpeggiated (var.3) and applied that to the reharmonization (var.4).

Yes, that must be it...the Glenn Miller Story.
What is your site? I would be interested in looking at your score if that is OK.
