Dwike Mitchel & Willie Ruff: A Tribute

This complicated two-handed piano arrangement of Johnny Burke and Jimmy van Heusen's But Beautiful is actually made more so by the fact that bassist Willie Ruff is playing in unison with pianist Dwike Mitchell's left-hand. See if you can pick this up while the melody is playing, before Dwike begins his solo at 0.33, or when the theme is re-stated beginning at 2:08 minutes.
