This book is based on my album of jazz-influences re-interpretations of six JS Bach piano classics. The "so what" chord consists of three perfect fourth intervals followed by a major third interval. It originates from Bill Evans' piano "amen" response to the head of Miles Davis' tune "So What". Bach would have loved it.
