Music: A Jazz Etude - Serendipitously Surreal

In this serendipitously surreal short "A Jazz Etude," tap dance extrordinaire Billy Burt dances up a storm in top hat, tuxedo tail and cane.

Is he floating?

And that screwy soundtrack ... a mishmash of 'Flight of the Bumblebee,' ragtime fills, and 1930's jazz cliches, is remeniscent of Carl Stalling or Raymond Scott.

Still, I doubt they ever arranged any composition to include a single piano accompanied by 4 double-basses and tap dancer.
