French musician, composer, and jazz pianist and big band leader.
Bolling grew up in Paris and became enamored at an early age by the music of Fats Waller. At age 15, he won a prize in an amateur contest for swing music and a year later had organized a band. He cut his first record at age 18.
In the 1950s and 1960s he composed scores for several French films and TV shows.
He and his big band continued to tour well into the late 1990s.
