    On repeated listens, the track (particularly the brass licks) sound a lot like Dave Brubeck’s Take Five.

    I learned about Jon Batiste when he improvised on the piano for Grace Vanderwaal’s Clearly.
    Didn’t know that he was a singer as well.

    Batiste is awesome! This performance made me think of the Charles Bradley performance in Luke Cage. Very different, yet both move as though it’s the music moving them rather than as though they are dancing with the music, like most artists.

    This dude tries too hard to seem like he has talent – damn shame this show decided to give him a platform to poison the world with his pathetic attempts at being a musician. He’s already got Steven Colbert’s show, where “musicians” go to die he doesn’t need any extra help.
