In a scene of the movie "A beautiful mind", they are speaking in a pub where a jazz song is being played; does anybody knows what track it is?

I believe its "Sing Sing Sing" by Benny Goodman, here is a version of it, keep in mind he probably recorded different versions of it over the years. the version i have may not be the same as the one in the movie.

Just listened to your clip again, I'm pretty sure that is Gene Krupa on drums and Benny on clarinet, but it may be a different version of "Sing Sing Sing" than the one I supplied. If its not the right version, just go on youtube and try out the different versions they have.

I agree with JS's post. I've known that piece for decades. But I don't recognize that version.

I have the 1938 Carnegie Hall version and the 1955 one recorded for Decca, used in the Goodman movie.
