Bach Fever!

Exploring the uses and abuses of Bach's music, from the jazz Bach craze of the 1960s to the electronic edifice of Wendy Carlos' Switched on Bach recordings. It has provided an incredible resource for pop invention, jazz improvisation, acapella swing, electronic futurism, rock guitar and plain kitsch.
