      Bon Appetit! and the Bolling Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano

      MONDAY, August 20 at 7:30pm Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown CASH BAR AVAILABLE Join us for a deliciously out-of-the-ordinary concert experience. Explore the innovative blend of baroque idioms and swing-style jazz found in Claude Bollings Suite for Flute and Jazz Trio. Watch as mezzo-soprano Samantha Malk literally whips up a chocolate cake on stage using real ingredients in Lee Hoiby's Bon Appétit!, a miniature one-woman opera based on Julia Child's beloved cooking show. Chocolate cake will be served! Program: Claude Bolling's Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Linda Chesis, flute Warren Jones, piano Ron Wasserman, bass Jon Di Fiore, drums Lee Hoibys Bon Appétit! Samantha Malk, mezzo soprano Warren Jones, piano LInda Chesis, flute Kemp Jernigan, oboe Pascal Archer, clarinet Mark Timmerman, bassoon Karl Kramer-Johansen, horn Claude Bolling's "Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano" was one of the first compositions to explore what has become commonly known as the crossoverstyle. In this case, the elements are classical, specifically baroque idioms merging with swing-style jazz. Written in 1975, for and in collaboration with the celebrated French flutist Jean-Pierre Rampal, the Bolling Suite was an immediate hit. In the top ten on Billboard charts for two years, it was in the top forty for eight years thereafter! Lee Hoibys "Bon Appétit!" is transcribed from an episode of the iconic Julia Child television broadcast in which the master creates a classic chocolate cake. You will be delighted by Samantha Malks hilarious multi-tasking impersonation of the French Chef - feverishly whisking with flour flying and egg-beaters racing, all while singing the text accompanied by a woodwind quintet and piano.
