Comments:This is just an exerpt, so it won't fit neatly with other Bach recordings, but should be of interest to anyone curious about unusual transcriptions or instrumentation of Bach's keyboard pieces. Anyone unfamiliar with Pastorius' playing will be floored by beautiful tonality that comes from his bass.
