Great Flick! My tech question was early in the movie when he plays What'd I Say on a Rhodes, although later he plays it on a Wurli.

Actually....  there was a scene just like that.  He starts singing and you can't hear him, and he spins the mic around and he's good.

That was a live scene and I remember thinking they must have been missing the vocal on the first line and blocked the scene to cover for it.

I just saw David "Fathead" Newman sitting in with Joey DeFrancesco (awesome!) and had a chance to speak with his wife. She said Fathead totally bought Fox as Ray and loved the movie.

Since Foxx was a piano major in college (I understand), and played his own piano in the movie, I'd say it was the real thing.

I read he got a 50% scholarship for piano.
