Magnificent piece of jazz and classical Bach music.

"If you like Bach, and have an open mind this DVD will blow you out! The 3 songs performed by Jacques Loussier Trio is a master piece. Bobby Mcferrin also bring briliantism and the King Swingers are superb. My 2 years old daughter loves them on this song. And they say kids are the worst critics!You can enjoy Bach in several alternative styles as well as in classical chamber and orchestra music style. And the recording is awesome! This is a live recording that sounds better than many studio recordings I've heard. OK there is some background noise, and the rain can be heard on the King Swingers track. Still I love it.I feel fortunate to have purchased this DVD, and I do enjoy it more every time I listen to it.
If you like Bach and Jazz this is a must have for you collection."
A must for any jazz or classical fan

"Many concert DVDs lack energy through poor video/audio quality and a lack of creative direction. This DVD excels in every category. The variety of music genres - symphonies to jazz vocals is amazing. I bought this being an avid fan of the Jacques Loussier trio and was rewarded with much more. Bobby McFerrin is great and the other performers are top notch. The direction is very creative making you feel like you are part of the audince. The picture is pure backed by a powerful 5.1 soundtrack."
Wonderful and entertaining!!

"This DVD contains a real nice Bach concert held in Leipzig, Germany. In the concert, there were a lot of famous musicians other than Bobby Mcferrin, who actually came up only three times. That means you can expect of variety. Mcferrin did great job with his unique talent and his sense of humor. It was also a true pleasure to see King'singers, who sang beautifully and very interestingly. (I want to get their own concert DVD if any) Also, you can enjoy Bach in jazz style as well as in serious manner. To see Gil Shaham play is also a treat. Technically, the sound/vision quality is superb. This is the one concert DVD you don't want to miss especially if you like Bach."
