Artist Jackson Pollock was born 103 years ago today in Cody,Montana. He died in a car accident at the age of 44.

Pollock was an avid collector of old 78 jazz records and compared his painting style to jazz. Jackson said "abstract art should be enjoyed just as music is enjoyed- after a while you may like it or not."

Here we play with his drip and splash technique to the frenzy of Lionel Hampton's "Jack The Bellboy," which was one of Pollock's favorite songs.
