Jascha Heifetz aka Jim Hoyl Plays "When You Make Love"...on Piano

What a lot of people don't know about Jascha Heifetz is that he was also a fine pianist, as well as a one-hit wonder as a songwriter under the pseudonym Jim Hoyl. Here he is playing an audio-only piano version of "When You Make Love". Check out the second to last paragraph of this short Heifetz bio to see a small photo of the sheet music's cover art.
