  • Episode Description
  • Jack's latest violin lesson ends badly when Professor LeBlanc attacks him, slits his own wrists and jumps out of the window. Finally realizing he'll never be a good violinist, Jack goes into a funk. To boost his confidence, Rochester pretends to record Benny playing a tune so he can hear how he sounds to listeners. Instead of playback, Isaac Stern, who's hidden in the closet, plays the same song. Delighted with how wonderful he sounds, Jack races to a recording studio to cut a record. The equipment begins smoking and Jack blames the lousy engineer. Benny discovers what Rochester has been doing and thanks him for the effort. For an encore, Stern is joined onstage by pianist Alexander Zakin for Polonaise No. 1 in D Major by Wieniawski.moreless
