Symphonic Arrangement

Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio


US pianist Steve Barta is hoping to interest a New Zealand orchestra in his arrangement of Claude Bolling's 1975 orchestral crossover hit: Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano. Barta is a composer and arranger from Texas who’s always had a passion for the flute. In his new arrangement he’s worked with leading US flutist Hubert Laws to breathe new life into Bolling’s orchestral suite which spent 530 weeks in the classical charts and spawned the term “crossover”.
