Lara St. John - Re: Bach
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Lara St. John - Re: BachThe music of Johann Sebastian Bach has always possessed a wonderful elasticity—check out Wendy Carlos’ Moog synthesized Switched on Bach. Here, violinist St. John, a native of London, Ont., puts a pop, jazz and worldbeat spin on the repertoire. Working with tabla virtuoso Trilok Gurtu and pedal steel guitarist B.J. Cole, St. John brings a cool Asian vibe to “Largo” and a surprising Latin jazz tinge to “Double.” Although classical purists will howl, Bach himself would likely be snapping his fingers.
