BACH TO THE FUTURE -- The Bach that rocks!

The time machine hatch glides smoothly open... Johann looks at the lighted display: he has landed in the early twenty-first century. "Good," he thinks. "It is the age of electronic instruments. What will my music sound like in this new

Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring
Arranged in an Afro-Cuban rhythm, this is often the opening piece in our live show. Bach's original melody is in 9/8 meter, and the 12/8 rhythm of our version fits surprisingly well.
Minuet/Little Fugue
There is a rhythm found in several African nations that musicologists call the "African Six." Rob plays this pattern on the Zendrum, his electronic percussion instrument worn like a guitar. I began writing this arrangement of the Minuet by imagining how a West African guitarist might play this simple melody.
Solfeggietto (C.P.E. Bach)
I have always thought this fast melody was a natural fit for a Latin jazz treatment. The solo piano intro is an improvisation on the original piece by J. S. Bach's son. I had jazz piano great Chick Corea in mind when I arranged this one.
5. Cello Suite #1, Prelude
Arranged for 6-string bass guitar. Matt plays it in a somewhat flowing style.It's a challenging part for the bass guitar, because the cello is tuned in fifths, whereas the bass guitar is in fourths. But it is a piece Matt has wanted to record for years.
8. Air on the G String *
Invention I
This track originally appeared on the Downtown Trio latest album, "U City Blues," and got the band thinking about this
concept of Bach's music through the filter of our modern world. It's played in a Greek 7/8 rhythm.
Tocatta (Live)
This is Ron's electric violin solo. He's doing his best Eddie Van Halen impression, by sending the signal of his violin through a guitar effects processor.
