JACQUES LOUSSIER, the leader of
the group, was born in Angers in 1934.
He entered the Paris Conservatory of
Mus'c at fifteen and ranked first out
of five hundred candidates.
In 1959, Loussier became intrigued
with the idea of playing Bach in jazz.
He chose two renowned French jazzmen,
Christian Garros on drums and Pierre
MIchelot on bass, as partners and PLAY
BACH was launched. Jacques Loussier's
original jazz interpretations gave
a new intricate dimension to the music
of Johann Sebastian Bach and brought
the group instantaneous acclaim abroad.
