5.0 out of 5 stars A damned fine album 12 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
Being an avid jazz fan and a lover of Bach's music I picked album up as a taster and am glad I did!
As all tracks are superb to single one out for praise is hard but Toccata and Fugue is breath-taking.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Play Bach-Loussier 1 April 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a delightful cd and shows Loussier in his element. The inprovisation is effortless, and if you didn't know how the original went, you might think that Bach had written the music that way!

5.0 out of 5 stars For loverts of Bach and jazz 15 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
As a lover of classics who likes a bit of jazz this is one of the most enjoyable disks I have bought for a long time. Beautifully played renditions of a wide variety of Bach's music, some familiar favourites, some less so. I will be getting more by Loussier. Strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jacques Loussier - the very best of play Bach 3 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was a Christmas present to a friend but a s I love him too I downloaded on to my Ipod! Naughty! It is excellent and made me look on Google to see if he is in concert anywhere. Unfortunately not. He has aged well too. Saw him last at de Montfort Hall in 1970 thereabouts! Brilliant man!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 12 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Heard a snippet from this album on radio recently and was reminded of how much I previously enjoyed his music. The album has not disappointed and has been played many times since we received it. We hear "something new" in it every time we listen. It gets played almost every other day at the moment.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works for Bach... 16 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
...if not for Mozart. Bach with a beat offers something worth hearing - I first heard Loussier as a teenager and have not changed my mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Very Best Of Play Bach 11 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This recording is much more evocative of Loussier at his best than more recent recordings. The use of percussion is more subtle and the playing generally more precise.
