New discs from Dave Brubeck and Jacques Loussier due October 23

SOURCE: Published: 2001-10-02
THE CROSSING, pianist Dave Brubeck's twelfth Telarc release, is inspired by his affinity for world travel and the wealth of experiences that come with it. The nine tracks represent the cross-fertilization of cultures at the core of all great art. Now in the eighth decade of his life, Brubeck remains one of the most prolific and influential jazz artists of any generation. An innovator since his earliest recordings, Brubeck has spent most of his life gathering and mastering an infinite cross section of musical and cultural nuances from every corner of the globe and from every facet of the melodic and rhythmic spectrum and grafting them to the American jazz tradition.



French pianist Jacques Loussier has been swinging the classics for over four decades now -- ever since he formed the Play Bach Trio in the late '50s. Selling over six million albums in fifteen years, the union of his classical background with his interest in jazz created a remarkable success story. On BAROQUE FAVORITES, Loussier and his partners tackle some of today's most widely heard and popular Baroque classics, including the enormously popular Canon in D by Pachelbel and the Adagio for Strings by Albinoni. The Jacques Loussier Trio will be making its first extended North American tour in late October/early November, with appearances in New York, Washington, D.C., Virginia, Florida, Georgia, and Los Angeles, California.

A full tour schedule for Dave Brubeck and Jacques Loussier is available on the Telarc website.
