Long-Lost Jim Henson Animation Turns Jazz Music Into Something Visual

Jim Henson may be best known for his puppeteering, but he also created a number of experimental animations, including this one, a visual interpretation of one of jazz great Chico Hamilton's pieces.

The Jim Henson Company recently rediscovered Drums West, one of a number of Henson pieces inspired by Hamilton's music. Henson created the short in his Bethesda, Maryland, home around 1961, and at the end of this video, the young Henson talks a bit about his process in making the papercut animation.
