Jean-Baptiste Lully in Jazz

Esteemed Readers, I have suddenly discovered this pretty curious jazz performance of Jean-Baptiste Lully’s music. This piece “Air tendre” from his Suite in E Minor demonstrates how much his style of the past is connected with Bossa Nova…Well, I’m not  music expert but…I wish to find correlations between two parts of his great Spirit printed in centuries for ever.

The present Air is adapted for saxophone & the pipe organ. Enjoy listening!

Vive le Roy! 🙂

    Molto bello, ma non riesco ad associarlo ala Bossa nova.
    Stupendo il dipinto.
