Released in 2003, Allegretto from Symphony No. 7, Theme and Variations features pianist Loussier in a trifecta alongside bassist Ben Dunoyer de Segonzac and drummer André Arpino interpreting ten variations on the Allegretto portion of Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 7. For those unfamiliar, the term Allegretto (translated as "rather fast") refers to the composition's tempo, encompassing a speed of less than 120 but exceeding 108 measures per minute. As he had done in prior outings that incorporated the respective works of Bach, Debussy, and Handel, among others, Loussier approaches the composition with an ear toward the third stream, blending classical pieces to a decidedly jazz orientation.

Jacques Loussier has spent most of his career blending jazz and classical styles into a lightly swinging and highly melodic hybrid. He is most well-known for tackling Bach, but here he covers a range of Baroque composers. Loussier, bassist Benoit Dunoyer De Segonzac, and drummer Andre Arpino play pieces by Handel, Pachabel, Scarlatti, Marcello, Albinoni, and Marias. Loussier has a very light touch and the trio is laid-back, never distracting from the melodies. You can hear the influence of Dave Brubeck in Loussier's playing (especially on Marais' "La Sonnerie de Sainte-Geneviève du Mont"), and much like Brubeck's best work, there is a strong sense of warmth and intelligence on Baroque Favorites. The only complaint one might have is that the brevity of some of the songs breaks up the flow of the record. Nevertheless, Baroque Favorites is a very nice album.

Pianist Jacques Loussier has certainly had an unusual career, much of it spent performing jazz interpretations of Bach's music. While his original works have been noteworthy, Loussier's most famous projects have been his transformations of Bach's music. In 1997 he tackled Vivaldi's Four Seasons, four concertos that he performed and recorded with his trio. ~ AllMusic

Although pianist/composer Jacques Loussier is best known for his groundbreaking J.S. Bach albums, his ability to reinvent the work of other composers is equally amazing. Ravel’s Boléro covers two very different aspects of impressionism: a new interpretation of "Boléro" by Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) and seven short compositions by Loussier that were inspired by Claude Monet’s paintings of waterlilies or "Nymphéas." While his emotions are wrapped up in the music and time of Ravel, it is Loussier’s resourceful ability to dance between the borders of jazz and classical music that is most likely to give his latest Telarc release its enduring appeal.

El gran WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART compuso "Concerto nº 20 in D Minor" y "Concerto nº 23 in A Major" recién llegado a Viena, procedente de su Salzsburgo natal.

Ahora, el pianista y arreglador JACQUES LOUSSIER nos presenta en este CD su particular versión, con nuevos arreglos adaptados al Jazz. Le acompañan el contrabajista BENOIT DUNOYER DE SEGONZAC, el batería ANDRE ARPINO y una orquesta de cuerda compuesta por 12 músicos, que le aportan ritmo y swing, pero sin abandonar el romanticismo original de las composiciones.

In bringing a sprightly jazz-trio sound to classical works, most notably by J.S. Bach, pianist Jacques Loussier has been dismissed as a lightweight popularizer by both hardcore jazz fans and serious classical enthusiasts. Yet he must be doing something right to be at it more than 45 years after founding his Play Bach Trio. Loussier's strategy in tackling all six of Bach's beloved Brandenburg Concertos, he said, involved "reducing his music to its essence" rather than elaborating on the musical texts as he once did.
