2. A classic

Nonetheless, the piano is slightly out of tune on a couple of tracks.

Itís on my holiday playlist because the music is perfect.

7. Yeah, but they're kids!

Of course, in today's music world, the kids' voices-- and the piano-- would be auto-tuned and pitch corrected.

Real music usually has more spirit and humanity than overworked ProTools sessions. That's just the opinion of an older man!

9. Duke Ellington once made a jazz version of the Nutcracker...

...and it's a gas. Worth looking up.
