Often spontaneous ideas

give birth to a beautiful story,

and this is the case with Swingin 'Bolling.

Claude Bolling's last public concert took place in Paris on June 24, 2014 at the Petit Journal Saint-Michel, a historic club where Claude performed as a trio for 40 years, every last Tuesday of the month.

On this occasion, Claude Bolling, Pierre Maingourd (double bass) and Vincent Cordelette (drums) were joined by Claude Tissendier (saxophone, clarinet) and Patrick Artero (trumpet), two other pillars of the Claude Bolling Big Band.

The cohesion between musicians is obvious, with a repertoire largely drawn from that of the Big Band and in music for images composed by Claude Bolling. Obviously it is a challenge to make a quintet sound like a big band, but the dialogues between the trumpet and the saxophone offer us a complicity, rare in large groups.
