Claude Bolling RIP

6 posts in this topic

Just learned that Claude Bolling died the 29th 90 years. I saw him perform a piano recital at the Woking Ellington conference (2012). He joined us for drinks afterwards. Spoke with him a few words. A very curtious and plessant man.  BIOGRAPHIE | Claude Bolling (claude-bolling.com)

Sad news. I always had an eccentric fondness for this goofy record:

I only have a couple of his albums.  I remember liking First Class, a big-band album with Stephane Grappelli.  Thank you for the music, Mr. Bolling, and rest in peace.

I was a big fan of the various suites (w iconic covers) in high school. Don’t think I’ve listened to them much since. Should track them down. I enjoy one of his JiP titles. RIP Mr Bolling.
