Maurice Andre – Badinerie by J.S. Bach

Here’s a recording of Maurice Andre performing J. S. Bach’s Badinerie with swing accompaniment. Notice that he plays his part in the classical style, but the accompaniment is swing jazz.

Eddie Lewis posts these videos as listening assignments to his students. He often tells the students that “listening is more important than practicing”. To that end, he shares the videos so the students have something to inspire them to listen more often to professional trumpet players.

That said, if you are not one of Mr. Lewis’ students, we welcome you, too. The more the merrier! Welcome to Feel free to post your comments and questions below.
