Neato! I think that's "St. James Infirmary" the violinist is riffing on.

yeah, the violinist is definitely playing with St James. Very, very, very cool.

Is that him humming around 1:40 to 2:00? That's almost as endearing as his reaction to his surprise collaborator.

Wow. Takes some gall to just start jamming with Mr. Brubeck, but certainly turned out worthwhile.

That is a thousand ways of wonderful. And in an era when the term has been diluted, it was truly awesome.

Wow, that was pretty great. Wonder who that violinist was and where he is now?

I didn't realise that Dave Brubeck and Martin Landau were separated at birth. Now we know.

This video demonstrates that not only is Jazz universal, but styles be damned; music just meshes every human so seamlessly.

This. The entire thread is a prime example of what the internet was meant for.
