Jason Vieaux Plays Bach and Armstrong
Jason Vieaux is one of the only classical guitarists ever to win a Grammy. (That’s just something you have to say when talking about Jason—that’s a huge accomplishment.) This week the popular Classsical Guitar Magazine released a video with Jason talking briefly about and then playing a few pieces.
Here is Jason playing the Allemande and Gigue from Johann Sebastian Bach’s 1st Lute Suite (BWV 996) and his own (fantastic!) arrangement of the song made hugely popular by Louis Armstrong, “What a Wonderful World.” Witness beautiful tone, incredibly sensitive phrasing, and, well, just good music. Kudos, Jason.
