My uncle posted an old video of my grandpa playing piano back in 1990. I can't stop listening to it! I'd love to learn to play it but I can't identify the song. It's also possible its improv. I don't know!!! Annoyingly the video cuts out JUST at the moment my grandpa turns to the camera to say what he just played. Anyways, here is the video. Hope people enjoy and can help identify it.

It sounds to me that he is playing two different songs. He ends one by saying "thats all", and then starts the second one. At the end of the second one you can hear him say one word of the title, but i can't make out what he is saying. If you could tell me that one word I could probably find the song.

I thought possibly the first song was called "Thats All", but here are some versions of "Thats All", and I don't think they are the same song.

I just had a listen. There aren't many standards that I don't know, but I can't place these two songs. When he says "That's all", he means that the song is over. He was not playing the song called "That's All".

He played well.
