Blues on Bach is an album by American jazz group the Modern Jazz Quartet recorded in 1973 and released on the Atlantic label. The album includes five John Lewis arrangements of pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach, interspersed with four original blues pieces "on" [the name] "Bach" -- in keys (and with titles) that spell out in order the name B-A-C-H. The five pieces arranged from Bach originals are: "Regret?" from "The Old Year Has Now Passed Away"; "Rise Up in the Morning" from "Sleepers Wake"; "Precious Joy" from "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring"; "Don't Stop This Train" from a selection in "Klavierbüchlein für Wilhelm Friedemann Bach"; and "Tears from the Children" from the Prelude 8 in E-flat minor from Book I of the "The Well-Tempered Clavier"). For the four blues pieces, the "spelling" of the titles follows the system Bach and his German contemporaries used, in which the letter B indicates B-flat, and the letter H is B-natural. So, the four blues pieces that spell the name B-A-C-H are in the keys of B-flat (major), A (minor), C (minor) and B (major).

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
