Student Performs New York State of Mind....with Billy Joel

In a Q&A session at Vanderbilt University, an audacious question leads to a magnificent impromptu performance - Michael Pollack gets the awesome privilege of accompanying Billy Joel in New York State of Mind. At 3:30, listen for the bridge passage sung in the style of Frank Sinatra.

Unfortunately, Michael reportedly flunked his calculus exam the next day.
