Jens Kruger tackles JS Bach

Jens Kruger has released a video which captures his arrangement of the first Bach Cello Suite, played on the banjo.

It was recorded in late September at Double Time Studio near Kruger’s home in North Wilkesboro, NC, produced  by Philip Zanon.

Jens brings out the beauty and simplicity of this lovely piece as though Bach had created it for the five string.

    Jens is the master! He not only has the ability to tackle pieces such as these, but he also has the taste to do them well. Keep at it, Jens!

    Excellent job. The office went quiet after a moment as he played.
