20121230It might surprise you that one of the big beasts of political journalism, not only likes to crunch his teeth on the political issues of the day, but is more than happy to bite down on the best in jazz.
Listen in as John Humphrys plays a selection of his favourite artists, from Sinatra and Nat King Cole, to Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie and Duke Ellington.
John also reveals there are others in the parliamentary jungle who know a swing vocal from a swing vote, and to whom a fascinating rhythm is more appealing than a political tap dance. To find out more, join John for this festive jazz cracker on BBC Radio 2.
