That’s from a live morning-show TV appearance; skip ahead to about 1:30 to get past the talk. This is a different rendition than what they did on the seminal Stay Awake album of diverse Disney covers – you can hear that version here if you want. I consider that to be the canonical cover, and you can hear their influence in Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s version:

Still a great rendition, with smoking horn work, but I favor Los Lobos. What’s your preference?
