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.

1. Baroque And Blue
2. Sentimentale
3. Javanaise
4. Fugace
5. Irlandaise
6. Versatile (With Bass Flute)
7. Veloce

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This Suite encapsulates the great musical ingenuity (of Claude Bolling and JP Rampal) and clever marketing to pioneer and capture an entire new generation of listeners - with its clever mix of classical and jazz music - sophistication with a touch of fun. Very outside the box music.

7 brilliant masterpieces which provide the flutist ample opportunity to showcase his versatility and the tone colour capabilities of his flute. Rampal rules in this sphere.
1. Baroque and blue
2. Sentimentale
3. Javanaise
4. Fugace
5. Irlandaise
6. Versatile
7. Veloce
It's hard to pick a favourite. Each weaves a beautiful sound tapestry where one gets "audio-ported" on a delightful journey with composer and flutist.

Very tongue in cheek marketing with the cover showing a cartoon of the flute in bed with the piano - a touch of warhol & woody - from that era (1970s-80s)

Having said that ... check out Suite No2... I love it even more!
