There’ll Be Some Changes Made (also released as Empirical) is an album by pianist Jaki Byard recorded in 1972 and released on the Muse label.

“Jaki Byard’s solo piano set for Muse ranges in styles from ragtime and stride to bop and the avant-garde. In addition to some off-the-wall choices (including “There’ll Be Some Changes Made,” “Besame Mucho” and Leonard Bernstein’s “Lonely Town”), Byard performs some of his better originals and displays his mastery of virtually every jazz style. This is one of his best all-round albums.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
