The research described in this paper focuses on global tempo transformations of monophonic audio recordings of saxophone jazz performances. More concretely, we have investigated the problem of how a performance played at a particular tempo can be automatically rendered at another tempo while preserving its expressivity. To do so we have developed a case-based reasoning system called TempoExpress. The results we have obtained have been extensively compared against a standard technique called uniform time stretching (UTS), and show that our approach is superior to UTS.
