J S Bach – Air on a G String (Leaping Ahead #25)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #25 (160125)

[A favourite classical piece]

The second movement from Bach’s orchestral suite No.3 in D major is most famously associated in the jazz arrangement of it played by the Jacques Loussier Trio as the accompaniment to the ‘Happiness is a cigar called Hamlet’ tobacco adverts. These ran on British TV from 1966 through 1991 when they were finally banned.
