What is this Jazz song, or artist, from the TV show Louie? I was watching Louie the other day, and the song during the credits is wonderful. Season 2: Episode 3: "Moving". Here's the clip that I recorded: http://www.esnips.com/doc/f87738ad-8d2a-4ee8-bca5-2093fcf5c6b8/Louie-Jazz You can also just hear it during the credits of that episode, if you go to Hulu. My sincerest apologies if there is a less sketchy way to get you guys the audio! Thanks, /bc

That link is borked. When I watched the credits, right when the sax started and the credits rolled it listed the performers of the original music in the show. The scene before had a some sax but more piano. My guess is it something done for the show with local musicians friends of his.

Louie is a labor of love for Louis CK. You might have some luck asking him on twitter. He probably gets a bazillion @ request but you might get lucky and he'd see it especially if it is a technical element of the show and not a YOU SUCK or YOU RULE type tweet.

It's called Brother Louie.
Here's a youtube link to a similar version by Hot Chocolate: Brother Louie

This version by The Stories is a little closer: Brother Louie

This splitsider article has an interesting observation on the song.

Sorry about my totally wrong answers. I read this question earlier today and clearly thought you were talking about the main theme.
