Hello,
I am learning Bach's Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring for my recital in November.  Can anyone recommend some bow exercise videos to help with my bow transition from triplet to triplet?  My teacher says I need to flow more and blend into the next triplet, so I believe my sound is too detached right now.  Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi Sharlene, In addition to the video Dianne mentioned, also check out #157, 158. Those are about smooth string crossings, which is what you're talking about. There's also an exercise there for you to work on.

See also video 188 String Crossings Series: part 1: Maintaining Tone where that piece is used.

Probably the most direct and effective way would be to use your piece, but to play the right hand only. That way, you can smooth out the transitions and work up your tempo.
