Bach in Central Arcade - Dec 21

Today in Central Arcade (home to musical instrument shop JG Windows Ltd.), Newcastle, a superb cellist played, from memory, JS Bach's Cello Suites. The graduate from the RNCM is presently based in Germany working towards a Master's. Your correspondent has often thought Bach would be a brilliant twenty-first century (jazz) improviser.
