COMPOSER STEVE BARTA MARKS 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF CLAUDE BOLLING'S CHART TOPPING "SUITE FOR FLUTE AND JAZZ PIANO" WITH NEW "SYMPHONIC ARRANGEMENT" FEATURING HUBERT LAWS AND
JEFFREY BIEGEL IN WORLD PREMIERE CONCERT, NOVEMBER 20 AND 21, AT
8 PM. IN MOLLOY COLLEGE'S MADISON THEATRE, LONG ISLAND, NEW YOR

Bolling gives Barta "A thousand bravos" for new recording of his classic, now available at iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby & SteveBartaMusic.com

"A true and modern arrangement!" is how composer Claude Bolling refers to Steve Barta's new "Symphonic Arrangement:Suite for Flute & Jazz Piano". Helping to coin the term, ‘crossover' in music, Bolling's 1975 recording enjoyed a rare, 530-week ride on the Billboard charts to become a standard in the jazz and classical worlds. With Bolling's approval, American Composer/Arranger Steve Barta set out to re-arrange and reintroduce this masterpiece to the world-but with quite a different approach. Barta has taken the original work and arranged it for jazz quartet, string quartet and orchestra. Re-titled "Symphonic Arrangement: Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano," (https://vimeo.com/1443046...) the new suite will have its premiere performance when The South Shore Symphony presents, "Jazz and the Classics" Friday and Saturday, November 20th and 21st , with guest soloists Hubert Laws and Jeffrey Biegel, both of whom are featured on the new recording. The concert will be held at the Madison Theatre at Molloy College on Long Island, New York at 8:00 p.m. For tickets and more information visit http://madisontheatreny.o..., or call 516-323-4444 or Ovation Ticketing, 866-811-4111.

Bringing together the best soloists in the jazz and classical worlds for the new interpretation, Barta reimagines Bolling's Suite and presents it in a whole new light. For Barta, finding the correct artists to interpret the Suite was essential. Master flutist Hubert Laws was simply the only choice says Barta: "Hubert is the rare person who has the capacity to walk in both the classical and jazz worlds," Jeffrey Biegel is a prodigy talent that is so appealing, not only because of his brilliant abilities at the piano, but because he also likes to take musical risks, stepping out into new areas of music, furthering his abilities as an artist, states Barta. And "Jeff's interpretation of Bolling's piece is masterful." Brazilian drummer and co-producer Michael Shapiro pays homage to the original arrangement, while at the same time putting his own stamp on this innovative combination of classical and jazz as only Michael Shapiro can do. Bassist Mike Valerio is yet another of the ensemble who holds the capacity to walk comfortably in both the classical and jazz worlds. Working with both orchestras and jazz ensembles, Valerio has his own sound and style, which fit perfectly into the jazz quartet. "I can't imagine a better group of four people for the jazz quartet," says Barta.

A stunning re-imagination of a classic, The new "Symphonic Arrangement:Suite for Flute & Jazz Piano" as arranged by Barta, seamlessly weaves string quartet, jazz quartet and orchestra together, creating yet another unique milestone fusion of both the jazz and classical music. It is available on vinyl LP, CD and digital on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby & SteveBartaMusic.com.
