If it works it’s probably because, like you learn in choir/chorus if you’re surrounded by enough talent you can get away with not being so great. And jazz piano could be a lot more free from the constraint of melody and just require some rhythm.

/EDIT: It does not work. I listened to the whole song after my initial post, and while there are a few moments that pass to my ear as actual jazz overall it does not work. It is still interesting in the few seconds where it plays.

Effin’ brilliant.

I was once asked to “jam” with some neighbors and being pretty apprehensive because I know nothing about jazz. By the end I realized that it’s easy (to fake). If a note sounds wrong, just lean on it like you meant it and move to a different note. Rinse, repeat.

Same here. When the host started laughing after they played the first clip I didn’t understand why. But some of the later clips were more obvious to me.
