  • In 1959, Loussier hit upon the idea that was to make his international reputation, by combining his interest in jazz with his love of J.S. Bach. Thereby he created his very own view of Bach, blending the most beautiful tunes of the Baroque master with an irresistibly swinging sound
  • Loussier's trio achieved the breakthrough to popular commercial success enjoyed by only a select few jazz musicians. In fifteen years, the group sold over six million albums
  • On the occasion of Loussier's 70th birthday, the ensemble performed its greatest hits for the first time in Bach's "own" church, St Thomas's in Leipzig
  • Brand new recording - state-of-the-art quality
