Claude Bolling's Suite No. 2 for Flute and Jazz Trio

offers a heady mix of jazzy and classic tunes turned to perfection

by the New Orleans Baroque Quartet.


The great American idiom of Jazz, combined with the

French sensibilities of pianist/composer Claude Bolling, has resulted

in a most delicious feast!


Claude Bolling, adept in both classical and jazz styles,

created the best-selling cross-genre record of the 20th century

with his Suite No. 1 for Flute & Jazz Trio.

He then set out to top his accomplishment with Suite No. 2,

and he succeeded brilliantly.


In these eight pieces, the variety, moods and flavors are astonishing,

and the final piece is climactic beyond belief.

These four top-notch performers are all equally adept

in the classical and jazz styles, and their playing combines

both icy technical precision and fiery jazz swing.

Revitalize yourself with New Orleans Baroque!
