Jacques Loussier Trio

A fine interpretation of Satie; lyrical but with a beat. Very infectious.

I like. Is good.

this is a great album, i hate paying for music but i bought this one. I am a big Brad Mehldau fan, and when I initially heard Gnossienne No. 3 I was blown away by the way that Jacques and the boys have adapted this classical piece and made it such a great haunting jazz song. For me its just as good and Brad's cover of 'exit music'. Satie wrote that you have to play each of his song X hundred amount of times to really understand it. In my humble opinion it sounds like the whole troop has played them a million times and they have really perfected them. One of the best Jazz/Classical albumbs out there.

Sublime.

tasteful, masterful jazz piano. Excellent accompaniment. Beautiful classical melodies come alive and dance. Give it a try.
