You would need to "warp" the track. Basically you manually set markers for where the beats and bars are, and then the warping process will pull everything to the grid. It's also called elastic audio in pro tools......

You can do the warping and pitch independently - in Ableton for example, you can choose re-pitch mode, this turns off the pitch correction part, and any bits you shorten or lengthen will adjust pitch accordingly.

And even if the tempo is rubato - where the performer slows down and speeds up expressively, there are still bars and beats....they're not at a strict tempo, so the term "grid" doesn't really apply, but the process is still the same.

So you can listen carefully, place markers around the bits you want to correct, and do it by ear. Or you can make a groove template to match the rubato bar and beat locations, and use that.
