From Nursery Rhyme to the Nurcracker Suite

Versions of a nursery rhyme or song given a jazz flavour plus some classical and pop music given a jazz makeover. We hear about the Worcestershire Youth Jazz Orchestra and we find out how Barry Manilow wrote the music for a jazz song with words by Johnny Mercer after the latter had died. Johnny Mercer had written the words for much music some years before.
