4.0 out of 5 stars Totally cool, 22 Aug 2003
This review is from: Blues On Bach (Audio CD)
This is the coolest record I've ever heard: it can sooth you no matter how wound up you get.
The Modern Jazz Quartet, playing keyboards, vibraharp, double-bass and percussion have produced this little album of nine separate tracks. Each track is based on a tune, mostly from the works of Bach (though there are a couple of new ones), which is developed into about single length. They capture completely in spirit what the composer Bach has come to mean to a modern audience - both the serenity and the emotional depth.
I'm sure I've heard these tracks more than once as movie scores (or at least the scores were heavilly influenced by them).
The only annoying detail is the occasional use of sleigh bells, which can be a bit tacky, but never spoils the whole effect..
