Blues on Bach is an album by American jazz group the Modern Jazz Quartet recorded in and released on the Atlantic label. The five pieces arranged from Bach originals are: "Regret? For the four blues pieces, the "spelling" of the titles follows the system Bach and his German contemporaries used, in which the letter B indicates B-flat, and Die Kleine Zeitungsfrau - Gerhard Schöne - Kinder-Lieder-Galerie letter H is B-natural.
The Allmusic review stated "This album has an interesting concept, alternating four original blues with five adaptations of melodies [sic] from classical works by Bach. The Modern Jazz Quartet had long been quite adept in both areas, and despite a certain lack of variety on this set alternating back and forth between the two styles somewhat predictablythe music is largely enjoyable".
