BACH TO THE FUTURE -- The Bach that rocks!

The time machine hatch glides smoothly open... Johann looks at the lighted display: he has landed in the early twenty-first century. "Good," he thinks. "It is the age of electronic instruments. What will my music sound like in this new
Millennium?"
BACH TO THE FUTURE is an exciting classical/jazz quartet, transforming the famous classical melodies of Bach and other composers into jazz, Latin, and other contemporary rhythms. The four musicians play cutting edge instruments, including the Drumitar, the MIDI electric violin, and synthesizers. They've sold over 100,000 CDs on their own label, Time Machine Records, and have opened for David Sanborn, Peter Cincotti, the Rippingtons, Eric Marienthal, Al DiMeola, Stanley Jordan, David Benoit, Michael Franks, and the Yellowjackets.
In addition to concerts, the group performs master classes and music education clinics, and has several
instructional books and CDs published by Mel Bay Publications.
Catch their new CD, "Bach to the Future," available now on Tower Records and iTunes. For more
information, visit www.bachtothefuture.net. Bach to the Future -- the Bach that rocks!

All arrangements by Bach to the Future, based on the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, except "Solfeggietto,"
by Carl Phillip Emanuel Bach

Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring
Arranged in an Afro-Cuban rhythm, this is often the opening piece in our live show. Bach's original melody is in 9/8 meter, and the 12/8 rhythm of our version fits surprisingly well.
Minuet/Little Fugue
There is a rhythm found in several African nations that musicologists call the "African Six." Rob plays this pattern on the Zendrum, his electronic percussion instrument worn like a guitar. I began writing this arrangement of the Minuet by imagining how a West African guitarist might play this simple melody.
Solfeggietto (C.P.E. Bach)
I have always thought this fast melody was a natural fit for a Latin jazz treatment. The solo piano intro is an improvisation on the original piece by J. S. Bach's son. I had jazz piano great Chick Corea in mind when I arranged this one.
5. Cello Suite #1, Prelude
Arranged for 6-string bass guitar. Matt plays it in a somewhat flowing style.It's a challenging part for the bass guitar, because the cello is tuned in fifths, whereas the bass guitar is in fourths. But it is a piece Matt has wanted to record for years.
8. Air on the G String *
Invention I
This track originally appeared on the Downtown Trio latest album, "U City Blues," and got the band thinking about this
concept of Bach's music through the filter of our modern world. It's played in a Greek 7/8 rhythm.
Tocatta (Live)
This is Ron's electric violin solo. He's doing his best Eddie Van Halen impression, by sending the signal of his violin through a guitar effects processor.

The cd arrived in excellent condition. It was even better than I expected. I found Joy from the cd on You Tube. It is a good arrangement of Joy halfway between the original classical version and the PDQ version of Apollo 100.

Bach to the Future hits all the right notes in their use of classical and jazz!
Bach to the Future hits all the right notes in their use of classical and jazz. The arrangements are very thoughtful, keeping Bach's structural elements while injecting great jazz fusion phrasing. This is the finest example I've heard of updating classical music. Tremendous!

Beautiful music!
The artists are very talented. If more people knew about them and their sound, their name, like Bach, would be well-known. I will do my part to spread the word!
