Jacques Loussier Trio Play Bach and More Blu-Ray

Jacques Loussier Trio - Jacques Loussier (piano), Benoit Dunoyer de Segonzac (bass), Andre Arpino (drums)

Live from St Thomas's Church - the church for which JS Bach conceived most of his works - comes a concert performed by the man who introduced Bach to the world of Jazz and vice versa. In 1959, Jacques Loussier hit upon the idea that was to make his international reputation, by combining his interest in jazz with his love of Bach. He created his very own view of the composer, blending the most beautiful tunes of the Baroque master with an irresistibly swinging sound. Loussier's trio achieved the breakthrough to popular commercial success enjoyed by only a select few jazz musicians. In fifteen years, the group sold over six million albums. On the occasion of Loussier's 70th birthday, the ensemble performed its greatest hits - jazz arrangements of Bach, Debussy, Satie and Ravel - for the first time in Bach's 'own' church in Leipzig. The disc also features an enlightening bonus track with an interview with the artist.
