Exploring Bach's Orchestra - Turn it Up! Bach and the Bass 

Bach is the undisputed master of the swinging Baroque bass line! From the classic Air on the G String onwards, Bach's groove, distinctive harmonic progressions and rhythmic drive have inspired generations of musicians from his contemporaries through to Procol Harum and Jaques Loussier. As the Swingle Singers themselves said, Bach is the original swinger.
