Ever since his landmark recordings (over six million albums were sold) made with the Play Bach Trio in the '60s, the name of classically-trained pianist/composer Jacques Loussier has been linked with that of the great master of Western music...Bach.

In addition to works by Bach, including the most notable "Air on a G String" and Goldberg Variatrions, this specially priced box set finds the Jacques Loussier trio putting their jazz spin on Vivaldi's Four Seasons and Satie's Gymnopedies and Gnossiennes.

In a rare solo piano recording, Jacques lends his hands to impressions on Chopin's Nocturnes.

"Jacques Loussier still draws on the energy of Paris and finds the same excitement in turning his hand to a piece by Bach he has not tackled before, as he did when his trio was first founded over forty years ago to try out his jazz interpretations for the very first time. Brilliant as ever." - Roger Marbeck
