ABC Music 7234 4 95157 27
The Kevin Hunt Bach Trio, Kevin Hunt (piano), Gary Holgate (bass) and Lawrie Thompson (drums) play the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, rearranged by Kevin for the modern jazz setting.
"…I suspect J.S Bach himself is reclining on a cloud, enjoying what another improvising spirit has done with his music. "The results are as clever as they are joyous. Hunt has been meticulous in reworking the pieces, and ingenious in opening them up as improvising vehicles…" John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald (27/5/98)
This recording was awarded ABC 24-Hours Listeners' Choice Award - Best Jazz CD Release 1998 and was also nominated for an Australian Music Industry Award in 1998.
