I sometimes get invitations to be fourth or fifth rate actor in the background for movies or TV series and did some commercials as musician.Have a pretty large film collection on DVD. I could recommend :
- the legend of 1900 ( lots of very nice piano playing)- the Cotton Club (Ellingtonia of course, the great The Mooche for example)- Pete Kelly's Blues- The Aviator (with Vince Giordano's Nighthawks)- West Side Story (of course no traditional jazz, but great music anyway)- Lawrence of Arabia (no jazz at all, but love that music)

Just to mention a few.
Kind regards,
Bert Brandsma

OMG, ROFL.  Thanks so much for the link as I had no clue what movie 
this link has been about.  Guess I need to see more movies and I would if I 
knew they were like this one.

You have to be in a certain mood to appreciate this film. When my 
  wife was 8 months pregnant and almost could do nothing anymore she had so much 
  fun watching it that it was a pleasure watching her!
The scenes with the 
  player piano are in the first movie. After about 43 minutes. Nielsen is 
  secretly in the office of the enemy. First he pushes a button at random and 
  the player piano starts. He stops it after a few seconds. Then he puts by 
  accidents a piece of paper on fire, everything starts to burn, panic, panic 
  and accidently he pushes the player piano button again. Everything goes wrong 
  now. Nielsen drops the precious vases, but the funny part is that they fall in 
  time with the music. You hear the sound of breaking glass but if you listen 
  closely you also hear two different pitched crash cymbals at the same time. 
  like a circus drummer.
