An evening pause: I’ve posted this song previously, performed by writer Brubeck and his quartet. This Pakistani version is definitely worth its own viewing, however, as it uses some very different instruments to make it happen.

    This is fascinating. Really well done.. The drummer the strings and I am not sure what instrument the one man was playing – a sitar? Even the guitar player was as cool as a cucumber. Thanks for the post. Really nice!

    When I grew up my parents played this song and a Louis Armstrong album almost continuously in our house. Despite that, I’ve always liked this song, and enjoyed this version a lot.
