Sharp-dressing piano-playing man: Jonathan Batiste at TEDGlobal 2012

Posted by: Helen Walters

Jonathan Batiste

Jonathan Batiste is back onstage to open the second day of TEDGlobal with a doctored burst of Chopin’s “Funeral March” on the melodica leading into a beautiful rendition of “St. James Infirmary Blues” on the piano. As the song says, Batiste really is the “sharp-dressing piano-playing man” who neatly shifts right back to conclude with an air of Chopin. What a beautiful way to start the day.
