Jacques Loussier - Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring

Genre: classical

On the right system the build up to the entry of the main theme is skilfully and subtly crafted, the bass and piano are exquisitely timed and there is a real sense of jazz rhythm informed by enormous respect and understanding of Bach’s music. The instruments have proper mass and there’s a real sense of swing to the rhythm changes. If there’s little sense of note or tunefulness to the bass, and bass and piano feel disconnected, it becomes adequately, but not memorably, played.
