If you tuned in to the first Stephen Colbert-led Late Night, you might have noticed a colorfully-dressed man playing a mini-piano like a trumpet. That would be Jon Batiste, 28, and he's Colbert's new bandleader. (The instrument's called a "harmonaboard," by the way – it belongs to a family of breath-driven keyboards called melodicas.)

This was a good thing. Potentially an excellent thing.
