We owe a monumental debt of gratitude and a HEAVY shout out to Hale Centre Theatre for providing the set, the elaborate costumes, the harpsichord, the descending piano/cello cage and, most of all, the friendliest professional team of stage people in the business! If you are ever in Utah, you HAVE to see a production there: http://www.hct.org .THANK YOU, AMAZING HALE PEOPLE!
Story behind the song
What if the harpsichord from the 1770s hit headlong into the talk box from 1970s? What if J.S. Bach and Jackson 5 met up and just jammed? Would they jive? Can you dig it? These are the kind of far out questions we asked ourselves as we laid down these licks and cut this film. We decided to put together a gig with two wigs in dandy attire and two hep-cats in some funkadelic threads to see if it would fly. (Incidentally, Steve's 1770/1970 alter egos are "Sir Reginald von Sharp" and "Scooby" while Jon's are "Duke Johann van Keymeister" and "Phil.")
Presenting… "I Want You Bach" – Jackson 5's funky "I Want You Back" mashed-up with 5 illustrious themes written by J.S. Bach. (See if you can catch them all – winner gets a free disco ball…which will be faxed to you).
All the sounds you hear were created by the instruments shown – including the words "I Want You Back/Bach" simulated by a "talk box" (popularly used in the 1970's, but never with a cello!) Here's how it works: Steve plays cello notes through a micro speaker built into a foot pedal, the sound then travels through a tube and into his mouth where he shapes the notes into actual words. (Google "talk box" to learn more – it's pretty groovy.) To our knowledge, the likes of electric cello, grand piano, harpsichord, Baroque cello, talk box, and kick drum have never gigged together. Until now. It's totally the battle of the 70's – the 1770s and the 1970s…can you dig?
Phil is tickling the ivories of a custom-built hybrid grand piano, while Scooby shreds on a custom 5-stringed electric cello complete with a sidecar kick drum. Conversely, Sir Reginald is playing a circa-1700-replica Baroque cello (no "why don't you fix it?" jokes, please), and Duke Johann is playing an actual harpsichord that was built and designed by Hale Centre Theatre. In fact, nearly everything you see in this video was provided by Hale Centre Theatre – from the sinking Piano/Cello platform down to the disco duds of Scooby and Phil opposite the Scarlett Pimpernel robes arrayed upon Johann and Sir Reggie.
We filmed this using 4K resolution (a huge step up from 1080p and quickly becoming the new "high def"), allowing for more freedom and flexibility to zoom in and out of static shots (which helped us create the illusion that two different versions of Jon and Steve were jamming together.)
Let us know what you think in the comments below! If you liked it – don't forget to flog the "thumbs up!"
And if you've read this far into the description you're invited to either an evening of highbrow hobnobbing with Sir Reginald von Sharp and his entourage or a night of sick roller-skating with Phil and his dancing mustache. Please choose a 1770s/1970s alter ego name.

Don't want to be too much of a party-pooper-purist-for-historical-accuracy, here... I mean, really? how DURST I?1?? But... about the kind of amplified celli our hear-owe is jamming on ever so hiply. Had they even been invented in the 1970's?!??
And yeah, I bet Frank Zappa's conversations with JS Bach that are going on in Heaven right now would be FABulous to get a transcript of. Ya KNOW?!??
Absolutely amazing. I usually just listen over my little iGrados directly plugged into the laptop. I liked this piece enough to go look for my ifi iDSD headphone amp
to plug in between just to be able to enjoy it even more. By now the big Fostex headphones sit on my head and I literally can't stop grinning over this fabulous mash up! Pure enjoyment! Thank you piano guys!

It's a harpsichord. Your local music store may be able to get one... possibly. They will almost definitely need to special order it, though; you're unlikely to find one on their display floor. Ebay sells them in the $1500 and up range.
This song brings such unimaginable fun. The arrangement and genius put into this is astonishing and completely utmost insane. Who wouldn't love this? Completely wipes away all my worries, never thought I could get high off music. 9999/10
