The Best of Play Bach is a compilation of Loussier’s three Bach-inspired Telarc collections. It celebrates Loussier’s 70th birthday and marks the 45th anniversary of the first live performance of the original Jacques Loussier Trio as well as the 20th anniversary of the reformed Trio that appears on all of the Telarc recordings. It is also the first vinyl version released by FIM.
Pianist/Composer Jacques Loussier has been swinging the classics for more than four decades now – ever since he formed the Play Bach Trio in the late ’50s, when the union of his classical background with his interest in jazz created a remarkable success story with more than six million units sold world wide.

Jacques Loussier and his Play Bach series are a two-fold living legend. • Jacques’ music and performances bridge and amalgamate the classical and jazz genres, exemplifying the glory of each. His unique artistry is loved by audiophiles and by classical and jazz listeners alike.

He recorded his first Play Bach album in 1959; since then, he has recorded some 50 albums and, in fact, continues doing so. The recording industry cannot boast another example of any music produced with such unsurpassed creativity and quality for a sustained 60 years.
I love Bach, and I initially rejected Loussier’s interpretations until I discovered that the simple trio arrangements—piano, double bass, and percussion—were helpful in listening tests. From this point I began to appreciate Loussier’s mastery of his subject. As jazz goes, it remains very friendly and approachable—a joy to revisit.www.stereophile.com

The perfect bridge between classical and jazz!
Loussier’s music and performances bridge and amalgamate the classical and jazz genres, exemplifying the glory of each. His unique artistry is loved by audiophiles and by classical and jazz listeners alike. In 1959, Loussier hit upon the idea that was to make his international reputation, combining his interest in jazz with his love of J.S. Bach. Only a pianist with such an exceptional classical technique and deft improvisatory skill could have nurtured such a vision.
