2009 year marks Loussier’s 75th birthday, and the fiftieth anniversary of his Play Bach Trio. The ageless Frenchman has been industrious since un-retiring a few years back, and here he plays with the energy of a 25-year-old. The seemingly impossible combination of motorific rhythmic intensity and relaxed, playful swing sounds as fresh as ever. Here he performs a few favourites and pieces he’s never recorded before. Highlights include a complete arrangement of the Toccata and Fuge in C major, and a delicious live reading of Choral No 1. ‘Sleepers Awake’.

Released in 2003, Allegretto from Symphony No. 7, Theme and Variations features pianist Loussier in a trifecta alongside bassist Ben Dunoyer de Segonzac and drummer André Arpino interpreting ten variations on the Allegretto portion of Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 7. For those unfamiliar, the term Allegretto (translated as "rather fast") refers to the composition's tempo, encompassing a speed of less than 120 but exceeding 108 measures per minute. As he had done in prior outings that incorporated the respective works of Bach, Debussy, and Handel, among others, Loussier approaches the composition with an ear toward the third stream, blending classical pieces to a decidedly jazz orientation.

Jacques Loussier - Play Bach Highlights (2008)

dustygroove.com:
Groundbreaking work from pianist Jacques Loussier – a hip mix of jazz music and classical themes that set a whole new standard for the 60s! Loussier's a very dynamic pianist who's clearly got classical roots – but he also manages to make these older tunes swing with a good degree of jazz-based energy – working with bassist Pierre Michelot and drummer Christian Garros, in a trio setting that brings plenty of modern moments to compositions by Joahan Sebastian Bach! This well-selected CD features 15 tracks pulled from the first five Play Bach albums by Jacques – titles that include "Fantasia In C Minor", "Choral No 1", "Toccata & Fugue In D Minor", "Prelude No 1 In C Major", "Aria", "Gigue", "Italian Concerto In F Major Allegro", and "Fugue No 2 In C Minor".

In bringing a sprightly jazz-trio sound to classical works, most notably by J.S. Bach, pianist Jacques Loussier has been dismissed as a lightweight popularizer by both hardcore jazz fans and serious classical enthusiasts. Yet he must be doing something right to be at it more than 45 years after founding his Play Bach Trio. Loussier's strategy in tackling all six of Bach's beloved Brandenburg Concertos, he said, involved "reducing his music to its essence" rather than elaborating on the musical texts as he once did.

Jacques Loussier - Play Bach Trio  Music

Posted by vlad at Dec. 9, 2005
Жак Лусье, французский пианист с классическим образованием, еще в 1959 году начал скрещивать Баха с джазом. Он и его трио были не первыми, но самыми талантливыми и тонкими среди своего барок-джазового поколения. Во всеобъемлющей баховской музыке Лусье находил элегантные и остроумные возможности для свинга. Чужой текст он препарировал деликатно, без крови, оставляя нетронутой фабулу. Это довольно сложно, если учесть, что джаз и музыка письменной традиции строятся по совершенно разным законам. Бах у Лусье получался мягкий, плюшевый, но не пошлый.

The CD is a return to the Trio’s roots in Bach via a new jazz interpretation of the entire six Brandenburg Concertos, in order. But this time a rather new approach is in the works. As described by Loussier himself: “Whereas my older recordings were about adding to Bach, this record is about reducing his music to its essence, taking the main themes and working with them as any jazz musician might in playing a theme, an improvisation, and a return to the theme.”
