The suite was recorded in 1975 by Bolling, classical flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal, bassist Max Hédiguer, and drummer Marcel Sabiani, and originally released as an LP album by CBS Masterworks Records and Columbia Masterworks. In the U.S., the album was nominated in 1975 for a Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance.[1] A video recording of Bolling and Rampal playing the Suite was recorded in 1976 at the Palace of Versailles in France, and was released on LaserVision video disc and on videotape. Eventually, under the title, Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio, digital CD and DVD versions of the respective audio and video recordings were also released. In 1986, Bolling and Rampal released Bolling's later composition, Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio No. 2.[2]
