There is special technicals and scales in playing integral tritone when playing jazz. Jazz is not only playing your feeling, there is culture of blues in jazz.
Play jazz from genetic, from where it was then you will play the real jazz. Playing or transcribing existing jazz standards is not properly way to play jazz. Jazz is climax of playing music freely and programmed.
