For your “Just Too Cool” file, Chris Thile (of Nickel Creek fame) plays the Presto movement from J.S. Bach’s Violin Sonata No. 1 BWV 1001 on his mandolin. Apparently we can look forward to an album of Bach’s work played by Thiles sometime in the not too distant future. I, for one, am very much looking forward to it!
Here is Chris playing the Prelude from Bach’s Partita in E Major BWV 1006. Unfreakingbelievable.
