Claude Bolling - Suite for Flute and Jazz PianoThis crossover music composed by Claude Bolling in 1973 has become one of the most well-known works for flute and jazz ensemble. When Jean-Pierre Rampal let Bolling know that he enjoyed Jazz and wanted the experience of playing with a Jazz trio, these pieces and album came to life fusing classical with Jazz. Over the years Sony continues to record fantastic sounding records, and Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio lives up to their high standards for excellent quality releases. While you are waiting to be picked up by one of the cruises that traverse the globe, Bolling’s album is a perfect blend of comfort and high society style. It is immediately engaging, and worthy of repeated listens, and certainly should be in your desert island collection.
