In it, Richard Nixon plays an original piano composition on Jack Paar’s “The Tonight Show” in March, 1963. Paar informs Nixon just before he plays that he will be accompanied by “15 Democratic violinists.”

Nixon responds with a jab at Former President Harry Truman, saying, “Republicans don’t want another piano player in the White House.”
