PLAYS BACH 50TH ANNIVERSARY RECORDINGS / Jacques Loussier
Jacques Loussier assembled the first incarnation of his Play Bach Trio in 1959, and immediately forced musicians and audiences of both jazz and classical music to rethink the boundaries – and indeed, the similarities – between their respective genres. Five decades later, Telarc International – a division of Concord Music Group – celebrates this landmark anniversary with the release of "Jacques Loussier Plays Bach: The 50th Anniversary Recording".
