Minuet in Dminor(J.S.Bach)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Bach gave his second wife a set of keyboard pieces now known as the Notebook of Anna Magdalena Bach. So in the spirit of giving I would like to offer Minuet in D minor arranged for jazz trio with an arabesque intro and outro.There is also a middle improv section. I am continually fascinated by the similarities of Baroque music and jazz. If you like that sort of thing i gave an excerpt from one of Bach's Brandenberg concertos a similar treatment. You can find it here-http://www.macjams.com/song/57525

Excellent torque
So, is that you playing sax? It definitely sounds like somebody playing live. What a wonderfully quirky re-arrangement for this. Man, you put a LOT of work into redoing it, well done! This is fascinating to listen to, especially if one is pretty familiar with the original. The sparse arrangement almost has a "Threepenny Opera" feel. I really like this. Will have to check out the Brandenberg work you did now!
ttfn,

thank you.
My sax playing must sound like MIDI. I dont know if that is good or bad. The glory really belongs to Uncle Johann doesnt it? Sometimes I wonder if that dude was really from planet Earth you know? And he thought the glory belonged to God. Who is right?

Really?
Not familiar with Mr.Bach's music or just this piece? If so there is a lot of stuff of his I think you would like.I highly recommend the Cello suites especially in the minor keys. Thanks for listening.
