Editorial Reviews

The Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio was a true revolution in the classical world in the US when it was firs released on LP in 1976 . Firstly because Claude Bolling had the idea of mixing the greatest musical movement of the 20th century - jazz - with classical music. America's appreciation of this cross-breeding raised the Suite to head the hit-parade for two years and to be ranked in the Billboard for 10 years (530 weeks). Through this work, Claude Bolling can be considered as the creator of 'crossover music'. His musical partner, Jean-Pierre Rampal, is now esteemed as the great classical flautist of the 20th century.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite recording March 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I bought this on cassette over 20 years ago, and it continues to be #1 in my top ten list of favorite recordings. It is a perfect blend of baroque and jazz. I remember playing this in my car and my passenger was amazed at the structure of the music, particularly transitions within the pieces. I like all of Bollings series of "_____ and jazz piano" but this is the best of all. It remains fresh & creative. How could anyone not find this music compelling?

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted it's available again! October 4, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a flutist, this is one of my favorite pieces of music both to play and to hear. There are other recordings available, but none with the upbeat, jazzy flair of the original Bolling-Rampal collaboration, and I did not want to remix my 30-year-old vinyl copy into a CD. I bought the Music Minus One version several months ago and it sounded almost funereal compared to the original. A strong recommendation for jazz and classical music lovers as well as for those just beginning to explore these genres.

5.0 out of 5 stars An oldie but a GREATie! October 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
First heard this record in a restaurant in 1978. Had to go get it immediately. Finally, we can get in on CD too!
Mostly uptempo lounge jazz (poor description, I know), SFFAJPT will become a favorite of yours, I'll bet. Good melodic hooks, thunderous piano, and expressive flute playing.
One's taste in music is so subjective it can be difficult or impossible to denote it words, so therein lies the flaw. But this is a low-risk purchase. There is almost no way you won't like SOMETHING on this disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great songs; enduring album July 31, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this record when it came out back in late '74 or early '75 when I was 11 years old. I was already a pianist and it inspired me to take up the flute as well. It's probably the best collection of flute/jazz piano songs I've ever heard. Rampal's playing is smooth and flawless, and Claude Bolling's instrumentation on the piano is a perfect complement. The songs vary in tempo and style, and every cut is worth listening to. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's nothing in the world quite like it! April 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I'm a fan of all sorts of music, from film music to pop/rock, folk, some country, vocal, opera, classical, and even some heavy metal. I don't have ANY music like this other than some of the other Bolling suites. This and "Suite No. 2" for Flute and Jazz Piano are ESSENTIAL. They never get old, and are like old friends every time you hear them, as they never fail to deliver. Whatever type of music you like or don't like, if you try this disc out and don't find yourself feeling happier than you were before you put it on, there's something wrong with you. One of those rare discs (like the Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds") that should be in every person's music library, to pop on from time-to-time as they go through life. I'm sure I will be listening to this and other Bolling jazz suites for decades and decades to come. He is the master of this art form as far as I'm concerned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Numero Uno September 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was introduced to these pieces not by hearting but by playing them. My wife plays the flute, I play the piano and she brought home the music which we worked on. I liked them all but the first two are my favorites (Fugace is a close third): Baroque and Blue and Sentimentale. (You don't realize how essential the bass and drums are until they are missing.)

These are the perfect blend of jazz and classical, intellectual yet fun pieces that delight on repeated hearings. The ensemble could not be better and Bolling is phenomental. This is the perfect CD for background music at a dinner party.

5.0 out of 5 stars The disc that started Bolling mania July 21, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is the disc that started the rave for Claude Bolling's jazz in the 1970's. The French jazz is light, sweet and captivating. It lead to, among other pieces, the Suite for Violin and Jazz Piano commissioned by Pinchas Zukerman; the Picnic Suite for Flute, Classical Guitar and Jazz Piano; and what may be the best of the lot, the under-appreciated masterpiece, the Concerto for Classical Guitar and Jazz Piano. A great introduction to Bolling's delightful French twist on American jazz.
