Many Jazz artists have sampled Johann Sebastian Bach, but few have done it with such imaginative vision as Uri Caine. We hear some samples of Caine's take on the Baroque master. Also, music from Indian tabla player Zakir Hussain, and Darius Milhaud's evocative "Creation du monde" ("Creation of the World"), from the Turtle Island String Quartet.

Danny Seidenberg / "Bach's Lunch"
Ernesto Lecuona / Vals del sena
Donal Fox / Jazz Sets and Tone Rows
Igor Stravinsky / "L'histoire du soldat" Suite
James P. Johnson / "Harlem" Symphony
