The suite for flute and a piano jazz trio in 1976 was a true revolution in the classical world in the US. Firstly because Claude Bolling had the idea of mixing the greatest musical movement of the XXth century – jazz – with classical music. The American’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, the general public consider Claude Bolling as the creator of crossover music, and his partner, Jean-Pierre Rampal is now esteemed as the great classical flautist of the XXth century.
