A Musician Plays "The Lick" on 92 Different Instruments

“The Lick” is a musical meme consisting of 7 notes. It appears frequently in jazz as a sort of stock phrase that musicians play easily and naturally.

As a professional musician, Luke Pickman can, of course, play it. As a collector of musical instruments, he has a lot of performance options. In this video, he plays the lick on 92 different (sometimes very different) instruments.

Yes, he plays the tenor sax, the piano, and the cello. But he also pulls out some more unusual choices, including castanets, a conch shell, and mayonaise.

Pickman personally owns 90 of the instruments. I’ll assume that the mayonaise is one of them.
