Default What todo? What to do......

I need help, I need to hear ideas from people with more experience, creativity and or better taste than myself... What do you guys do when you hire a musician to improvise on one of your songs and he delivers 6 amazing takes, all of them perfect, inspired and so beautiful and you can decide which one to use... What would you guys do?

You can create alternate versions (mixes). Depending on your fan base, you can post them on your website (Soundcloud), create polls, get your followers engaged, etc.

Thanks, I thought too about making 2 or 3 versions and include them as a bonus with the album. I ended up editing longer vocal parts using fragments of all of them. It was a lot of work but the improvisations are so inspired that it was a lot of fun. I'll share once I'm done with the master
