In this serendipitously surreal short "A Jazz Etude," tap dance extraordinaire 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 reminiscent 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.
Rare & authentic 16mm films of cultural, historical and ironical significance.
