The Most Beautiful of the Claude Bolling Suites
D. Lang | Victorville, CA USA | 07/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have most of Claude Bolling's Suites. This one to date is my favorite. The pieces on this CD contain many enjoyable melodies. I think this CD merges the classic and jazz sound the best. The transition between the piano and orchestra are very smooth. It is perhaps a little more classical sounding then the others I have. Bolling seems to develop his theme a little bit more then the other suites.1: Gracieuse (7:15) about 4 minutes into the piano takes the lead, but the orchestra is in a dialogue. 2: Sereine (7:55) My favorite on the album. It starts off with a very mellow classical piano. Oboes start to play the lead. The Chamber orchestra and piano then take up a dialogue; Most of the different instruments are featured somewhere in the piece.3: EnJouee (6:48) The music starts off with a melody that I enjoy a lot. 4: Aria, Animee: (15:18) Starts off very soft and quite. Then about 8 minutes into the tract there is a Jazz piano solo- ad lib. That serves as the transition. Animee picks up the speed a little. Overall a very mellow piece.5: Brillante (10:40) Starts off with a light classic violin sound. Then the orchestra builds with French horns. The jazz piano kicks in but blends nicely with the classical sound. People who might like this CD1. People who like the other Bolling Jazz Suites2. People whom like classical chamber orchestra music.3. Those who enjoy long extended pieces.People who might not care for this CD1. Classical or Jazz purest.2. Those who don't like any music over 4 minutes long3. People who limit themselves only to the most POPular music styles"
A wonderful romp!

"I'm a pianist who will be performing this wonderful piece in a couple of weeks (5/5/01). The more I work on it the more I like it. Against a baroque background, Bolling has ingeniously and unapologetically superimposed every kind of jazz you can think of -- blues, ragtime, Latin, stomp, waltz, modern, and on and on. I know of no other composer who could have put together such a tour de force. This piece deserves a much wider hearing. Buy it!"
Oh yea...

"If you have any liking at all for Jazz and/or Classical, or even if you simply love music in general, then this release will leave you wanting for more. I mean, WOW! What a fantastic blend! I could gush on and on, but the bottom line is that this is a great recording of some great music and it will almost certainly make you smile."
