A Tribute to Claude Bolling

Broke and Blue

Claude Bolling (1930-2020) was a French jazz pianist. Trained initially as a classical pianist, his music is a beautiful blend of the two genres. His First Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano is still extremely popular with musicians and audiences, alike. Broke and Blue play three movements from that suite, as well as his arrangement of Chicago, and his piece California. If you’ve never heard Bolling’s work, now is the time to discover the music of this talented and prolific composer.
