[From "Kovacs Corner" on YouTube.com] - Although it is posted all over YT, no tribute site would be complete without Kovacs' signature comedy sketch. Of course, it's The Nairobi Trio's syncopated rendition of Robert Maxwell's "Solfeggio". As if you didn't already know, the costumed gorilla with the cigar in his mouth is Ernie. The pianist's has been self identified as Ernie's co-star Jolene Brand. The timpanist has never been identified but, in this particular performance, his apparent small stature suggests it is Kovacs' sidekick the late Bobby Lauher. At other times, the role was reported to have been played by Ernie's best friend Jack Lemmon, Milton Berle, and the Chairman of the Board himself, Frank Sinatra.
