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.
Per the original 1975 Columbia LP liner notes, also reproduced in the earlier CD release as CBS Masterworks MK 33233 issued back in 1984: "One floor in the CBS Building...houses Columbia Records' Artists & Repertoire divisions - pop, jazz and classical. A feeling of camaraderie generally exists among the workers but the sound of a tape or disc reference denoting a new release can, and often does, lead to patient shrugs or tempered verbal exchanges between people of widely differing musical persuasions. A happy exception to this attitude of reluctant laissez-faire occurred recently when pianist Claude Bolling's Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano was played in a producer's office. The universal appeal of this record became immediately apparent when other producers and secretaries from all divisions converged spontaneously in an expression of enthusiastic interest."
For unknown reasons, Sony (Columbia/CBS) no longer has the contract rights for this album. However, this Milan re-issue is the EXACT same performance and album as the one sold by Columbia in the 1970s and 1980s, albeit the cover art is slightly different. Sound quality of this album remains excellent, as it was on the previous CBS/Sony LP and CD releases.
Almost 40 years have passed since the initial release of this album.Read more ›

A classic, performed by the artist who wrote the piece and his friend for whom it was written. So this had to be, and still is, the reference. Read morePublished 24 months ago by CuriousMarc
