    Jacques Loussier: Oct  27th - November 2nd
     
    Pianist Jacques Loussier turned 80 earlier this week. He's composed soundtracks for nearly 70 films but is best-known for his jazz treatments of works by Satie, Debussy, Ravel, Vivaldi, Schumann  and in particular J.S. Bach. All this week, we pay a birthday tribute on BLUE, with recordings of Loussier interpreting a number of classical composers. And we dip into two 2-CD retrospective releases which came out on Telarc in 2014: "My Personal Favorites: The Jacques Loussier Trio Plays Bach" and "Beyond Bach: Other Composers I Adore".
