Audio fruitcake: "The Nutcracker Suite" by the Brian Setzer Orchestra


Who would've thought that years after his star had faded, former Stray Cat Brian Setzer would have a career renaissance as a bandleader specializing in swinging Christmas songs? Bully for him. This has eight minute condensation is my favorite interpretation of Tchaikovsky's work

Fun Fact: I've never actually seen a full performance of The Nutcracker. Strange, considering that I enjoy all the meats of our cultural stew.
