Bolling's Greatest Hits

All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
CBS attempts to summarize Claude Bolling's voluminous output of classical/jazz suites with Bolling's Greatest Hits, a single disc of excerpts from eight of them. All of the CBS issues up to 1987 except Suite for Chamber Orchestra and Jazz Piano Trio are represented; the list of classical collaborators is impressive -- Jean-Pierre Rampal, Maurice Andre, Alexander Lagoya, Yo-Yo Ma, Pinchas Zukerman. Along with Bolling's changing French rhythm sections, American jazzmen like Hubert Laws, Bud Shank, Chuck Domanico, and Shelly Manne are here as well.

While CBS' mad programmer manages to choose the best cut on the Suite for Cello and Jazz Piano Trio "Baroque in Rhythm", the most famous numbers on the First Suite "Baroque and Blue," "Sentimentale", and the most astonishing piece in the Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio, Vol. 2 "Jazzy", the Toot Suite is poorly represented by "Mystique" and "Rag-Polka." Yet this disc will give you the basic idea about Bolling's likable mergers of idioms, and casual browsers may not need anything else.

    A good introduction to Claude Bolling

    I was looking for another copy of "California Suite", and this was as much as was available. Includes 'Black Folks', a favorite, which I wanted to introduce to my niece.

    Recently I've purchased a number of "Best of ..." CDs, but on this occasion, my motive was different. If new to Claude Bolling, this is a good introduction. I noticed 'Black Folks' was the last cut. I can't help but wonder what how the selections were ordered.

    If Claude Bolling's music is new to you, if you like a marriage of "classical music", jazz, and classically trained musicians do jazz, try this.

    If you can find it, try "California Suite" with Hubert Laws. Also try Lalo Shifrin's "Return of the Marquis De Sade". Both composers have done music for the movies.

    After hearing "California Suite", I wanted to see the movie. It's based on a Neil Simon play. Tried it. Alas, the DVD would not play ....

    Bolling's Greatest Hits

    Upbeat and happy; has higher speeds as well as slow and mellow ones (please hear Sentimentale); Bolling puts together a CD with a song for many different moods; a CD that is relaxing, exciting and fun with a touch of Jean-Pierre Rampal as a compliment to this enjoyable collection of songs.
