This book has been a top-selling item for years, and now a companion CD with play-along and backing tracks is available! This means flute players can now learn this legendary piece of music on their own – our perfect piano accompaniment CDs eliminate the need for a pianist to play with! The CD can be purchased alone, for those that already own the book, and a book/CD pack is also available for those purchasing this for the first time.

This suite in seven parts is composed for a “classic” flute and a “jazz” piano. It was the first jazz recording of world-renowned flutist Jean-Pierre Rampal and Claude Bolling. It is possible to play the whole piece with only flute and piano, but bass and drum parts are included for the complete Suite. The CD includes full recordings and flute play-along tracks for seven songs: Baroque and Blue • Fugace • Irlandaise • Javanaise • Sentimentale • Veloce • Versatile.

  • March 05, 2012 too fast!

    I was excited to purchase this accompaniment CD for my daughter, who has been working on the second movement for a college audition. She had been practicing it with the Rampal recording in the background prior to purchasing this. It's true what someone else said about the fact that...

    you can hear the flute part being played. However, it's so quiet it is not a distraction. What is difficult, at least for the second movement, is that it is too fast! Significantly faster than the Rampal recording. It made it impossible for my daughter to play the fast parts, and in my opinion, it doesn't sound as nice that fast--it loses some of its musicality.

  • May 08, 2009 The music is wonderful, but...

    The music is wonderful, and this is the reason why I purchased the play along CD, but it has some problems. I have been an amateaur flute and sax player for 30 yrs, and learned to play this piece listening to a vinil LP, when it was opriginaly released. This...

    is not the original recording featuring Bolling and Rampal. Although the trasncription is accurate, the flute player is inexpressive and has a poor sound. Bassist and drummer sometimes makes me feel this is a Band-in-a-Box acompaniement. A great part of the enjoyment of playing this wonderful suite is lost because of the poor performance of the trio. It can be used to learn how to play the notes, but if you want to performe this piece as expressively as it deserves, the trio will not help. Besides that, the flute can be heard on the playalong tracks.

    This is a wonderful, creative, jazzy, buzzy suite for classical flute and jazz trio. Sweet and funky, and altogether magic!
