Every night in a Shanghai bar, the Old Jazz Band - average age 75 - plays western tunes with an oriental twist. The musicians are old enough to have lived through the turbulent years of the city's recent history, from British 'concession' and Japanese occupation through communism to tearaway economic boom.
Kathy Flower orders a drink and listens as the music and stories flow.
