I love that time is the true test of music. So thank-you Bach. I also think it's great to be creative and interpretive. I'm going to guess that Bach himself would like this arrangement.

I don't have the luxury of a bassist or drummer so I'll have to play it the old-fashioned way. smile

Love this. Risky, dangerous, gorgeous, and confident. Bach would have flipped.

I thought the title love and hate was going to be about the vast differences between the loving non-classical section and the hatefully intolerant classical section. eek

Jacques Loussier Trio? I have several of his trio's CDs. He is primarily known for Bach, but they do others, too. Have you heard Handel's Water Music or the Royal Fireworks Suite? laugh

What I'd really like to find would be a Loussier version of the Busoni version of Bach's Chaconne.

Rumor has it that he recorded it, but it's so powerful, they had to make it illegal.

I am learning Prelude and Fugue number 12 from WTC II for my upcoming grade 8 exam and my teached suggested I listen to some Loussier and try 'swinging it' some whilst practicising - much in the vein of Kreisler's scales article about using dotted rhythms as a means of improving evenness of touch etc.

All good fun I think, and perhaps even a bridge between those camps BJones feels so aggrieved (mock?) about..... actually I doubt they really exist - after all, my teacher is absolutely fine with the idea of jazzing up classical (albeit largely as a means of improving my tone and touch for classical performance...) so from where we see it "it's ok - we won't be burned at the stake by either fictional factional..

Am glad people enjoyed the clip - I am certainly thinking of getting some stuff of his on CD smile

Tolerable to 3-14 but he starts to murder it after that.

What's not to love?! I wasn't acquainted with the Jacques Loussier Trio, and I agree with Riddler that the Bach-Busoni Chaconne would get an awesome treatment by them.

A couple of years ago, I became aware of the Andrzej Jagodziński Trio and their jazz interpretations of Chopin. It's great stuff; they have some videos on YouTube, too:

Unfortunately it did,nt pass me. Once my ears were brutally assailed I had no choice.
It was in my way and I had to cut through it with the sword of brutal truth.

No not really a "murder". In fact, Loussier breathes new life into the old scary "Tocatta and Fugue". Bach would love it. Simply marvelous!

I love the little jazz episodes where Loussier seems to erupt with delirious abandon while still maintaining complete and masterful control.

That's so strangely odd that you would love that, yet hate my Chopin etude improv. He's a good player, but obviously doesn't have half the chops I have when my hands are working:

He has his ears shut to plenty of classical music, too, as you'll see if you read the thread entitled "COMPOSERS" over there. smile

That rocks. I especially like the opening cymbals - Bach would have agreed I'm sure, though the piece may well not be by Bach.


snobbyish, yet maybe helpful.
