Overview

Baroque Favorites: Jazz Improvisations

Jacques Loussier has proven that he can make any music swing -- from Bach's Goldberg Variations to Debussy's Clair de lune. Here he updates a program of Baroque favorites, giving stylish, jazzy renditions of Pachelbel's Canon, Albinoni's Adagio, Handel's Largo (from Xerxes), and other works by Marcello, Scarlatti, and Marais. As always, Loussier is respectful of the originals while he breathes new life into familiar fare. Telarc's sound is immediate and rich, capturing the cool sizzle of André Arpino's drums and the deep thump of Benoit Dunoyer de Segonzac's bass. Fun stuff, and -- in the melancholy tune of Scarlatti's B Minor Sonata -- touching, too.
