    They also played the incredible instrumental section from Drake’s song “Road” – a classic.

    What was the music played on the jukebox in the last scene in the café?

    • Dane says:

      I’m not sure, because I don’t have the movie in front of me to verify the same sound but after going to the soundtrack page on IMDB I brought up ‘ Vero Valse ‘ on Youtube and got this – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o42636leAhY which apparently is called ‘Minor Swing’

      but I think Django Reinhardt’s version is closer – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kt6ULcZxwRo, in any case it seems to be of the same sound and construction as in the movie and the era is the late 1930’s.
