I don't know why mr. Loussier isn't yet found on this site. He is THE jazz-pianist who played the bach-works authenticly with a rhythm-section. Some tunes don't even have a solo. Very tastefully recorded. Glenn Gould once said: "I don't need jazz, I've got Bach, and nobody swings like Bach". He's right. If you play a invention and add a rhythm section, it swings. So for all you classical/jazz lovers: buy this record!!!
