Notes & Reviews:

Born in Chicago in 1931, composer/conductor James Bolle studied at Harvard, Antioch College and Northwestern. He was instrumental in founding numerous musical organizations, the first being The Chicago Youth Orchestra at age 15. He founded the New Hampshire Symphony Orchestra, which he conducted for 29 years and Monadnock Music, which he directed for 42 years. As a composer, his major works include the opera Oleum Canis, five sinfonias, four string quartets, concerti, orchestral works, songs and chamber music. This is the second disc on Albany Records devoted exclusively to him music.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
The composer cites Milhaud as "his most important teacher", which might explain the Satie connection. Brief notes by the composer. Performances are good. From what I can tell, these folks seem to hail from New Hampshire.
