Can anyone identify the artist that plays the jazzy background music in this Stella Artois ad?

The melody of "Home on the Range" that most of us know seems to date from the early 1930's. In the 1920's, the song used a different melody, which is used in the 1928 version by Jules Verne Allen to which I linked. Unfortunately, there seem to be no other recordings on Youtube using this version, although I have a couple in my record collection. By the way, I prefer it to the newer version.

The popularity of the newer version may have been enhanced after FDR reportedly said that it was his favorite song.

Speaking of background music in ads, I recall a TV commercial from the 1990's--I don't recall the product--in which a baritone sang "Home on the Range" in Italian--although the words he was singing, "Capanna nel la Campagna" actually mean "shack in the countryside."

Wow, a beer and jazz snob.

How is it you haven't gotten on my party invite list.

Someone leaked that I raid the rare single malt stash and do a dance routine with a lampshade on my head? Damn the bastard. ;-)

I would bet body parts that the background music in the Stella Artois commercials is the Dave Brubeck Quartet. The piano sounds like Brubeck, and the alto sax has to be Paul Desmond. If it’s not the DBQ, I’d sure love to know who it was, but I am — what, supremely confident? Yeah. Supremely confident

That’s it.
Except in the commercial, it seems a lot slower than the track you find on youtube.
