Found this on Classic FM and was impressed with the fugue bridge

Classic FM Nina Simone

I've seen her on old reruns of the Ed Sullivan show - that clip might actually be from that. Wonderful!

Had already seen Nina Simone's video a couple of years ago, and I'm still as impressed now as I was back then.
And Shearing's fugue passage is just as beautiful.

As I recall, the Dave Brubeck quartet had a fugal section in their rendition of Til the Clouds Roll By.
