T is for... Trio

How's my mental health today?

It's a dreary day which fits with how I feel at the moment.

A to Z challenge - T is for Trio.

When I went to Germany to study music in 1973 my music knowledge was limited to not much more than classical music. One of the friends I made over there invited me to a jazz concert. The performing group was the Play Bach Trio, also known as the Jaques Loussier Trio. A lot of their music is improvisations on music of J.S Bach. I got hooked on Jazz and have enjoyed it ever since. Youtube has a number of videos of that Trio.

If you have the time and interest, here's a complete concert at the St Thomas Church in Leipzig.

Incidentally, listening to this music has brightened up my day.

If it's too loud, you're too old!

  1. So glad the music has lifted your mood and spirits up. It's wet and windy here in the UK. Since they imposed the hosepipe ban in the South of England we seem to have continuous rain!

  2. I can tell you that music is an important force to people, whether it is dissonent modern music, minor key blues etc etc.
    In Georgia (USA) they were giving new parents a mozart CD to help the kid get started in life (seriously).
    I have music playing all the time if I'm not in a conversation.
    When you get6 down, I'll bet there is music to lift your spirits.
