Hi guys, thanks so much for checking out this first video backing track package from my site. Back in November 2013 I went into Silent City studios with Garry Jackson on Bass and Dave Walsh on Drums to record a series of organic trio based backing tracks that would build and fall naturally for you guys to jam over. The concept was to make cool sounding tracks with real players that would be both fun and challenging to play over and the result is these eleven tracks with close up video of each player.
Underappreciated in his own time, Johann Sebastian Bach has ascended to Olympian heights in the estimation of generations of music lovers. But what is it about his music that makes it great?

Highly recommended.

L'architecture est, sans aucun doute, parmi les arts, celui qui laissa le plus de traces dans toute l'Europe, parsemant le continent de magnifiques églises et palais baroques, à la hauteur de la puissance de ses commanditaires. …
This programme completes the Comédie et Tragédie project with Tempesta di Mare, and consists of suites made up of orchestral excerpts from three dramatic works of the French stage, spanning seventy-three years, all highlighting the importance of dance as a part of drama.
When contemplating the baroque period in French music in connection with the flute, it would probably be names such as Hotteterre, Blavet or Mondonville which would first come to mind. Joseph Bodin de Boismortier was something of a mass-market composer whose many works served as much to earn his keep as to supply the amateur music market with fairly playable pieces. But his six sonatas (opus 91), although in many ways conventional, do require some very good playing from both performers and are distinguished by having the harpsichord part fully notated.
