Song from Lincoln car commercial???

What is the song from the Lincoln auto ads? It is a jazzy/acid jazz song. Currently it is in the Lincoln Navigator ad. A previous commercial had a guy sitting in the vehicle who was playing with all of the power features while a band played in a nearby building. Anyone know this song?

Not that you asked, but it samples "Bird's Lament" by Moondog. And that's a phenomenal album. IMO the remix was completely unnecessary -- the original percussion is so cool that adding a drum machine just seems silly.

There's another version of it on Sax Pax for a Sax, another Moondog album which is a little bit easier to get into -- a lot of the tracks on "Moondog" are rounds and chorals which just get boring quickly.
