The Nutcracker, Suites (classical ballet and jazz band version from 1960)
- Apple Music
Reviving the art of “swinging the classics”, Steven Richman and the Harmonie Ensemble/New York present two different versions of the beloved Nutcracker Suite side by side on the same album for the first time: the Tchaikovsky original of 1892, followed by the 1960 jazz remake masterminded by the American dream team of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. Compare and contrast!
