here is a leadsheet that i did for a female vocalist - with lyrics - the first 8 bars are a freely played intro. it is in the usual key of gm. i have downloaded it to my website -

well, i would just try anything not really relating to the actual chord progression maybe something like:  

freely!

ebm13   d7alt  c-11  bb-6/9  ab13#11  g- ....start playing the tune

i think in term of verse just play anything like bill evans appraoch!
or maybe contsant structures like:

eb-11   d-11  c-11  bb-13  ab-13  g- ....  

haha! try it!
  

see at the end of the video, you can use the ending of kheit jarret as your verse intro!
the leadsheet i have is the original verse written for the song. i assumed that that was what was requested.
