Bach

The highlight on ARTS this morning is a guy named Larry Adler playing Bach on the harmonica. He plays two pieces, "Siciliano" with piano accompaniment and "Gavotte" alone. It's fabulously expressive. Who would have thought?

This was followed by a jazz trio playing Bach's Fugue #5 from the Well Tempered Klavier in the market square in Leipzig. They are definitely making me believe. Maybe Bach invented jazz.

I love to hear things made into something else. It bends your brain in a very pleasing way. I never found out anything about Beethoven on the electric guitar.
