1934年10月生於法国的昂热(Angers)的贾克˙路西耶，在13岁时便决心以音乐为他的终生事业。两年后，他进入巴黎音乐学院(Paris Conservatoire)，在杰出教师伊弗(Yves Nat)的指导下，成为全班五百多名学生中最出色的一位。
Jacques Loussier first left his imprint on the jazz world in 1959 with unusual and remarkable recordings of jazz interpretations of J.S. Bach’s keyboard pieces. Nearly six million copies sold in Europe of these critically acclaimed albums. In August 1996, Jacques Loussier joined the Telarc roster with a new recording of his favorite Bach interpretations (CD-83411). He lends his perfected craft to Vivaldi's best loved piece, The Four Seasons, employing examplary technique and persuasive original improvisations to bridge the world of classical and jazz music.
Like his Bach renditions, The Four Seasons captures the spirit and depth of the composer without sounding contrived or superficial. Loussier approaches the string music with an essentially percussive sound, trying to achieve different ‘lighting’ effects using the bass and the drums to represent the changes in color on Vivaldi’s original.
“It is essential to capure the ‘sparkling’ nature of his music, but I also aim to interpret Vivaldi in the spirit of the twenty-first century, using his orchestral writing as a jumping-off point,” Loussier said.
Loussier is at his finest on The Four Seasons, and is able to capture the essence of Vivaldi and interpret his music flawlessly.

Pianist Jacques Loussier has certainly had an unusual career, much of it spent performing jazz interpretations of Bach's music. While his original works have been noteworthy, Loussier's most famous projects have been his transformations of Bach's music. In 1997 he tackled Vivaldi's Four Seasons, four concertos that he performed and recorded with his trio. As with Bach's pieces, Loussier pays respect to Vivaldi's melodies and the development of the works while swinging the music. He divides each of the concertos into three parts, improvises tastefully while keeping the themes in mind, and leads his trio through some uncharted territory. Loussier occasionally recalls the style of John Lewis and Allegro Non Molto from the Summer piece has some resemblances to Lewis' "Django." Due to Loussier's impressive technique, respect for both idioms and his well thought-out concept, this unique set is a complete success. ~ AllMusic
