I (and apparently a lot of others in Teh Intarwebz) find it to be a challenge to "name that tune."

If you have a smartphone, there's an app called Shazam that will identify pretty much any tune.

Sounds like Bill Evans at first. But then comes the sappy sax.

I can’t identify the song, but the saxophonist sounds a lot like Coltrane.

I don't know that tune, but I've been amazed at some of the background music I've been hearing on TV ads. For example, a recent Kia spot featured Bobby Day & the Satellites' obscure 1958 release Beep-Beep-Beep. And another ad featured I Love You, California, a tune which few Californians know, even though it's our state song.

Sounds like variations on ‘I Dream of You’. Brubeck did it as a cut on one of his records, IIRC.

Could it be: No Problem by Art Blakely's Jazz Messengers from their 1962 album 'Les Liaisons Dangereuses,'

A company called ‘Sound Tree’ has done custom music for Stella Artois. Stella Artois has also used Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers for spots.

Sounds like it was recorded for the commercial. It’s no jazz classic that I know of.

I think it's this guy, but he died in 2008.

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
